The 57-year-old departed Adelaide airport on
Sunday to fly to Kathmandu in Nepal, and will
spend a few days acclimatising to the conditions
before attempting the climb on Friday.
Leopold, and long-time friend Terry Savage,
will be part of a 15-person group taking part in
the 18-day trek, that will see them ascend be-
yond the well-known 'base camp', but not to
the summit, before making their descent.
"It's something I've always wanted to do, but
never had anyone to do it with, and it was an
ideal opportunity," Leopold said.
"Terry came to our house one day and said
'guess what I'm doing?', and I said 'no, you're
not, you can't go without me'."
Leopold has been training for 20 months in
preparation for the trek, which has included
three personal training sessions each week, with
personal trainers Benji Gowling and Luke Koek,
focusing on strength and cardio work.
"They've been brilliant, absolutely brilliant,"
"(They've been) keeping me on target, setting
challenges, making me get to the next level, en-
couraging me to believe that I can actually attain
what I want to attain and getting me there.
"They've been really instrumental with keep-
ing me on track; I don't think I could have done
it without them."
Leopold has also been doing plenty of hill-
walking as part of her conditioning work; last
Easter she and Savage trekked 73km through
the Adelaide Hills, on the Heysen Trail, to
Mannum carrying 10kg backpacks.
Climbing Mount Everest, despite its continu-
ing popularity as a challenge, is still a dangerous
From flying into the world's most perilous
airport, Lukla, to climbing the mountain itself,
Leopold is aware of the potential risks, but pre-
fers to keep her focus on the task ahead.
"I try very hard not to dwell on (the risks),
but they can create a degree of anxiety, for sure,"
"There's probably times where you go through
your training and you think, 'I've got this,' and
then you get closer to the end of it and you start
to realise what you're actually doing, and the
dangers that are actually involved, and it sort of
makes you think 'am I ready for this?'
"But you are; you've done the training, you've
prepped, you've done everything that you can
"You've just got to hope for the best; just listen
to what your Sherpas tell you and try hard."
Buchfelde resident Lynne Leopold has her
sights set on achieving a long-time goal this
Friday, climbing Mount Everest.
