7 summits. 7 continents. 116 days. 1 world record.

Caroline Leon is no stranger to a challenge.

In 2015, Caroline thought she would never walk again, now with the support of DHL she is setting off on an attempt to climb seven volcanic summits across seven continents in record time.

Dubai-based Caroline Leon has always loved the outdoors, and a fitness lifestyle. She puts this down to her upbringing in Sydney, Australia, where she was forever surfing, running, hiking, but her true passion was always climbing. She carried this passion with her from Australia to Dubai but then, in 2015, in one devastating moment her life changed.

Caroline was near the top of a wooden outdoor climbing wall when one of the pegs she was holding on to came away. She fell seven meters to the ground, landing on both feet and shattering her feet, spine and pelvis.

Doctors said she would never walk again. Yet, 14 surgeries and 23 blood transfusions later, she is now taking on one of the world’s biggest physical and mental challenges.
