Stevie Barker

Stevie’s climbing expertise began when she was just thirteen after she signed up for the Duke of Edinburgh award. Little did she know that what was once just a hobby, would soon turn into an obsession…

Since then she has continued to complete all three Duke of Edinburgh awards, obtained her Foundation degree in outdoor education, finished both the Cosford and Wendall 50 mile marches, and conquered the prestigious 100 mile Nijmegen March.

Having lived in the Lake District for 2 years, Stevie has explored almost all the hills the Lake District has to offer, yet she still discovers a new challenge in every trip. She has completed the Yorkshire 3 Peaks challenge, and while she has summited all three separately, hopes to tackle the National 3 Peak 24 hour challenge soon. Notably, Stevie has reached the top of Moldoveanu, the highest mountain in Romania.

Stevie recently visited New Zealand where she thoroughly enjoyed tackling the peaks of the mighty Southern Alps.

Favourite Place:

The Lake District. "After living there for 2 years, having climbed most of the hills there every trip is still a challenge."
