Sisters prepare barefoot and high-heel climb
Bookmark and Share
Two sisters from the Barbourne area of Worcester are to climb the UK's three highest mountains in as many days and they will use all the climbing gear one would expect except one thing - climbing shoes.

Speaking to the Worcester News, Helen and Maria Cowie revealed that they plan to scale Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon over a three-day period in a bid to raise money for the Mwase Childcare charity in Uganda.

Rather than wearing walking shoes however, the pair have decided to add a little twist, with Helen opting for high heels while her sister scales the peaks barefoot.

Helen told the newspaper: "When I tell people I'm climbing the mountains wearing heels they just roll their eyes at me and think I'm crazy for doing it. We have already had a trial run climbing Snowdon doing the same thing but this will be a bit of a step up."

This Is Sussex reported recently that three teachers are to gather their climbing gear and scale Scafell Pike, Mount Snowdon and Ben Nevis simultaneously to raise money for a new sports hall.
