SOPHIE LAVAUD, OR THE DEFINITION OF RESILIENCE!

"What a disappointment, disillusionment, the Dhaulagiri Women Who Dare project is infected with Covid 19!"


Unfortunately affected by the Covid at the beginning of May, Sophie Lavaud, like all the members of the expedition, had to give up reaching the summit of Dhaulagiri...

The RTS television team that was filming the program "Passe-moi les jumelles" was also forced to turn back.


The RTS television team that was filming the program "Passe-moi les jumelles" was also forced to turn back, but not without having shot many images of the ascent to the base camps; the program will therefore be broadcast on our screens in the fall!

Here are some images transmitted by Sophie that reveal the magic, as well as the difficulty of the conditions of such an expedition...

Let's go to camp 1


After having taken care of herself (in isolation) in Kathmandu, our climber returned to Geneva at the beginning of June.


We had the pleasure to receive her in our offices, she reassured us on her physical condition as well as on her mental steel which allowed her to start training again quickly and climb summits again...in the heart of the Alps this time, since the training will be local this summer!


"A summer in the Alps to recharge and we'll see what possibilities there are in the fall".


If the health conditions and restrictions of the different countries hosting the Himalayas do not get in the way, Sophie and her team are aiming for a return to Dhaulagiri in the fall!


We will follow closely the different steps and will report back to you on the "road book"!


Let's wish her the best of luck in achieving her goals, and most of all... in good health!
