Mollie Hughes is a Mountaineer, Adventurer and Motivational Speaker based in Edinburgh, Scotland.
On the 19th May 2012 Mollie became one of the youngest British climbers to stand on top of the world when she summited Mount Everest from the South side, at the age of just 21.
On Tuesday 16th May 2017, at 4:45am, Mollie Hughes successfully reached the summit of Mount Everest from the North side.
Achieving this feat at the age of 26 made Mollie the youngest woman in the world and the first English woman to successfully summit from both the north and south sides of the world’s highest mountain.
Mollie first fell in love with the mountains at the age of 17 when she joined a school expedition to climb Mount Kenya. Throughout the rest of school and university Mollie would save up as much money as I could in the year and then spend it all on an expedition over the summer.
Mollie has climbed in the Indian Himalayas, the Nepalese Himalayas, Volcanos of Ecuador, North and East Africa and has spent much time in the European Alps and of course the mountains of the UK.
Mollie has a very exciting story to share and is available to give insightful and inspiring presentations to a wide variety of audiences, exploring her experiences of climbing the highest mountain in the world. Mollie will get across to her audience that they can achieve absolutely anything with the right mix of determination, self-belief and team work.
