The drop was quite steep. We didn’t believe that we were supposed be climbing down this section of rock but there didn’t seem to be any other way. We were about 2km into the hike and there was no turning back now.

Only back at the car did Elmare Welgemoed share that she was afraid of heights and that this adventure would become one of proudest achievements.

Elmare met the Dirt Addicts at a Tuesday Killarney training session and joined with the hopes of fighting her own “laziness” and to train regularly.

While she too doesn’t like big groups of people, she loves cooking for her friends and visiting wine farms. She wanted to part of a “team” type environment and to share the love for adventure in cycling and walking.

The Metal Fabricator has dreams to visit the gorillas in Rwanda and walk the Chinese wall. She also looks forward to trying new sports.
