In July, the children of Leo Houlding has become the world Champions after climbing to the top of mount Piz Badile, 10 000 ft (3-km peaks), which is located on the border of Switzerland and Italy. Curiously, Freya only 7 years old, and her younger brother, Jackson is only 3 years old. Yes, three.
Climbing the adventurous Duo to the summit was headed by their father Leo and mother Jess. According to Sky News, the whole family slowly went to the mountain, spending one night in an Alpine hut and two nights in shelters-a bivouac.
After Jackson walked the path to the top, he became the youngest man to have conquered this mountain (climb, he was helped by mom), and Freya became the youngest, who got to the top without assistance.
“My daughter has ascended to the top completely on his own, including camping and stuff – it was very impressive,’ said Leo Houlding. – Last week she turned seven.”
According to Leo, his wife was carrying Jackson on her back most of the way, while the father carried all the camping equipment and the food for the family.
“In previous years we have done a lot of things in the UK and Europe, but every summer, children become more and more capable,” he added.
At the end of the campaign, according to Leo, the children received a special surprise: chocolate.
“It was really good, I liked it, as I was climbing for myself,” Jackson told a little about his journey.
“It was very fun and very scary. I am very proud of,” added his sister.
But the family does not stop. Now they go to multi-day trek throughout Montenegro.
