"DON'T JUST HAVE ONE ADVENTURE OF A LIFETIME, MAKE A LIFETIME OF ADVENTURE."

Lucy's adventures range from big to small. Below are some of her more prominant expeditions.

 
 

Climbing the world's coldest mountain: Denali

Denali (Mount McKinley) is often referred to as the world's coldest mountain. In May 2017 Lucy and her three team mates set off each with 200lbs of food, kit and fuel. Luckily, bringing all the extra kit was worth it because at 14,000ft camp the team got stuck in their tents in a 2 week storm. Temperatures reached -40C and winds at 90mph. Once the storm broke for a few days, the team were able to make their move up North America's highest mountain.
