After some days of training and acclimatation she set off for the 1670-meter ascent and reached the summit after 7 hours and 8 minutes of climbing. 3 hours later she was back down, thus claiming the shortest total route time in Tanzania history. Fernanda now focuses on her next challenge: the Diagonale des Fous in Reunion Island.
