The Girl Who Climbed Everest – Sue Williams

On 08, Oct 2016 | In Media | By Alyssa

It’s been a little whole since I wrote on here. Life has been hectic since coming home from the Mount Everest Expedition.

Right now I have been working really hard in our adventure business – Adventure Professionals – and also in doing media for the newly released booked about my adventures – The Girl Who Climbed Everest by Sue Williams.

Here’s a little extract from Andrew Backhouse that came out today:

“IF YOU’RE reading this, it means I have died on Mt Everest…”

Alyssa Azar was determined to conquer the highest peak in the world but also wanted the last say in case she did not make it back down Mt Everest alive. She wrote a note to her family and critics in the event of her death.

In May this year, at the age of 19, Alyssa became the youngest Australian to climb the 8848-metre mountain that is part of a range that forms a border between Nepal and Tibet.

The highs and lows of her attempts to climb Mt Everest have been revealed in a new book, The Girl Who Climbed Everest, by Sue Williams.

Alyssa had attempted the climb twice before, and said the expeditions were incredibly dangerous. She knew there would be controversy if she died in the attempt.

I also appeared on The Today Show – Channel 9 recently:

Once again thanks for all your support. I look forward to updating a little more regularly with what I am up to in the coming months.

Next week I am off to lead another Kokoda Track adventure, this one for the charity – MatesMates – who do great things with our Defence Force veteran community.
