Part 1

 

This week on the podcast Robert had the honour is sitting down with one of Scotlands greatest mountaineers and famous polar explorer, Myrtle Simpson

Working in Fort William and climbing with Scottish mountaineering legends like Hamish Macinnes, Mick Tighe, and Ian Sykes, she has been on expeditions across the world doing first ascents of massive peaks. She then went on to be the first woman to cross over Greenland and an attempt at the first to reach the North pole.

 

It was also her 90th birthday when we recorded this, so please leave us a comment with all the birthday wishes and we will pass it on. 

Enjoy
