Jordan gets its first female boots on Everest summit

  • Dubai-based mountaineer Dolores Shelleh also became first Arab woman to scale the world’s highest mountain from its northern side
  • Shelleh previously summited Mount Manaslu, the eighth highest mountain in the world, as well as Europe’s highest peak, Mount Elbrus, and Africa’s highest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro

DUBAI: Dubai-based mountaineer Dolores Shelleh became the first Jordanian woman to scale mount Everest this week, as well as being the first Arab woman to scale the world’s highest mountain from its northern side.

“By scaling Mt. Everest from the North Col, I intended to highlight the message of embracing more sustainable practices and to promote the use of renewable energy as well as reinforce the need to follow healthy lifestyles in harmony with nature,” Shelleh said.

“The challenge I undertook was particularly arduous as the North Col of Mt. Everest route called for more technical climbing and the weather conditions were windier and chillier. With the support and blessings of my family, friends and my co-residents in The Sustainable City, I was able to accomplish the task,” she added.

Shelleh’s climb was sponsored by The Sustainable City, the Middle East’s first fully operational sustainable community, found in the UAE.

Shelleh previously summited Mount Manaslu, the eighth highest mountain in the world, as well as Europe’s highest peak, Mount Elbrus, and Africa’s highest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro.
