Leanna Shuttleworth, an eighteen year old British climber is on a quest to make a new record this climbing season by climbing Mount Everest and Lhotse within 24 hours. She has already climbed six of the seven highest summits and her Everest summit will complete her Seven Summits Challenge making her the youngest British woman to carry out the feat. Leanna will be making her twin summit bid in April 2012.
