#7: Over Seven Summits around the World – with Helga Hengge

Mount Everest in the Himalayas, Mt Vinson in Antarctica - only two of the highest mountains on each of the seven continents. The former VOGUE fashion editor and today's extreme mountaineer Helga Hengge was the first German woman ever to successfully climb them all. She has experienced challenges that could not be more diverse, from the deep silence of Antarctica to the Stone Age of Papua, through rainforest and enormous snowstorms, up to the airy heights of steep summit ridges. In this episode of Unfolding Maps she talks about some of these adventures.
