Deshun Deysel's latest achievement

I'm so cross with myself that I missed High-altitude mountaineer, Deshun Deysel's latest achievement, of taking a group of women along. The First for woman Kilimanjaro team, with Deysel at the helm, took on Killimanjaro and on Saturday, 12 Jan 2008, they summited Kili at the Uhuru peak. This is part of Deshuns vision of summiting the 7 highest mountains on each of the 7 continents. She now has 2 under her belt, namely Kilimanjaro, the highest in Africa and Mount Elbrus, which she summitted on 8 August 2007.

I heard her on radio as we were on our way back from holiday in Cape Town at the beginning of Jan 2008, telling her story of the First for woman Kilimanjaro project and we hoped to see anything in the media, to no avail. We commit to keep track of this amazing truly South African women, as she takes on the mountains of the world. We are right behind you Deshun!
