Véronique Denys, Tax Manager with the Québec City office, is off on another adventure after having made her dream of conquering Everest come true last May. Véronique will now attempt to scale the Carstensz Pyramid in Oceania in order to complete the “Seven Summits” challenge.
The “Seven Summits” challenge consists in climbing the tallest mountain peaks of each of the seven continents—an international challenge coveted by the greatest mountaineers in the world. If Véronique manages to scale the Carstenz Pyramid, she will only have to climb to the top of the Vinson Massif in Antarctica to become the first Québecker ever to accomplish this epic feat.
“Now, I’m beginning to realize that I can make this happen. Before climbing Everest there was always a doubt, because you’re faced with so many unexpected occurrences in the Himalayas, but now, the dream that I’ve cherished for so long should be achieved before the end of the year, if all goes well”, said Véronique in an article that ran in Le Soleil on September 25. Best of luck, Véronique!
