We love celebrating amazing women doing amazing things. 

Last month Nikki Bradley climbed to the summit of Bristi Sea Stack, in the west of Donegal. According to expert climber and guide Iain Miller from Unique Ascent, "this is a technical rock climb on the seaward face of the stack. The climb involved two pitches of technical rock climbing and a 100ft abseil from the summit to the base of the stack."

Check out the climb here.

For anyone, this alone would be some feat, but Nikki Bradley was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer (Ewing's Sarcoma) at 16 and the receiver of a second total right hip replacement at the age of 26. So for Nikki is an extra incredible accomplishment. 

"Nikki has been on a truly unique journey. So unique in fact, she has been informed by her consultant that she is currently one of less than ten people worldwide to have lived through what she has."

And what's next for Nikki? Nikki is currently in training for her hardest challenge yet, The Motivation Factory The 4 Peak Challenge this July.  The mountains are Carrauntoohil, Co. Kerry, Croagh Patrick, Co. Mayo, Slieve Donard, Co. Down and Mount Errigal in the Hills of Donegal.

Congrats Nikki and here's to more adventures.
