In 2015 Liz Bedford climbed her last of the 50(ish) 4000m peaks of the Alps, becoming the second British woman to do so. She is still not sure how she got to this point, perhaps she is just living proof that if you keep climbing long enough you can do anything. Her talk will cover thoughts about lists, learning and loving mountains. Hopefully, it may offer something to both the experienced and less experienced alpinist or at least some pretty photos.
