DARK HORSES

 

All around us in the mountains are active, inspiring DARK HORSES. Some of them have already been seen in the spotlights pushing limits, whilst others are quietly building up the most impressive list of ticks you can imagine. Climbers, mountaineers, alpinists, skiers, runners, bikers: name a sport and there’ll be a lady there.

You may know some of these amazing women: others will be fresh faces. One thing’s for certain…..they are all out there in the mountains shredding, crushing, whatever you want to call things, generally all round doing it!

 

Check out some of the WMC’s favourite ladies, starting with the ever enthusiastic Sophie Radcliffe on a mini-adventure:
