Pearl Going tackles her seven summits: exclusive pics from the Kilimanjaro leg

Filed by Lucire staff/February 28, 2012/0.43

It is 26-year-old Pearl Going’s desire to climb the world’s seven summits in record time, with the help of Adidas Outdoor and Sony New Zealand—and she’s already on her way.
   She’s just emailed us after climbing Mt Aconcagua, being the first Australasian woman to do a full traverse of Aconcagua base camp to base camp in less than five days.
   Last August, she managed to tackle Mt Elbrus (5,642 m) in Russia, with Mt Kilimanjaro (5,895 m) following in November.
   She is the first New Zealand woman to tackle Elbrus’s north face, while she also took the more difficult traverse of Kilimanjaro. Lucire has managed to get these images from the Kilimanjaro expedition.
   Guy Cotter is behind Going’s training in New Zealand, with the climber working in Wanaka to refine her skills.
   So far, Going says she has not felt any difficulty at 6,000 m thanks to her training.
   Her next target is Mt Everest, scheduled for April–June.
