The Women’s Climbing Year summaries!

One hour before the new year begins, it’s time to sum up the results of the women’s mountaineering year! In a short line, just on the dotted line, let us mark out the central heights that women have managed to achieve, working on ascents by female teams!

It turned out to be an eventful year. Despite the inevitable difficulties associated with travel restrictions, the teams managed to find suitable sites for themselves and successfully climb them. We hope that this fighting spirit to spend as much time as possible in the mountains the girls will take with them into 2021.
