Anna Wells

I currently work as a Doctor in the Scottish Highlands, but I am planning to take a career break to focus on climbing. I absolutely love being in the mountains! The freedom of wide open spaces and the rush of trying hard. My favourite activities are rock climbing, summer alpinism, skimo and running, with my happiest moments have included climbing El Capitan, summiting 37 4000ers in one summer, and I have also been fortunate to travel the world as part of the GB Ice Climbing Team.

I have a lot of adventourous projects in mind and in the long game I have my sights set on the winter olympics!

The Number Crunch: 37 x 4000m Alpine peaks in one summer (including 22 in 6 days). El Capitan, Triple Direct (3 days). Lurking Fear (13 hours). 14th, Ice Climbing World Cup, Saas-Fee. Cuillin Ridge, winter traverse in a day.
