First gorilla to summit Everest


In March 2010, Fi Ramsden headed out to the Himalayas to attempt to climb to the summit of Everest. In doing so, raising money for the Kenyan Orphan Project.

Fi Ramsden is a doctor with experience in expedition medicine, with a particular interest in working - both on and off-screen- on media productions in remote locations. Her thirst for adventure and the outdoors is what drew her away from a career in conventional medicine.

Fi reached the summit of Mount Everest at 8.00am on Tuesday 25th May.

Powertraveller is extremely proud to say that our minigorilla netbook charger and solargorilla solar panel kept Fi's heated boot & glove warmers and running for the duration of the expedition and even made it into one or two photos at the summit!
