Dolores said: “I am thankful to the support of The Sustainable City, my home in Dubai, and a community that I am proud of for their focus on sustainable living. By scaling Mt. Everest from the North Col, I intended to highlight the message of embracing more sustainable practices and to promote the use of renewable energy as well as reinforce the need to follow healthy lifestyles in harmony with nature. The challenge I undertook was particularly arduous as the North Col of Mt. Everest route called for more technical climbing and the weather conditions were windier and chillier. With the support and blessings of my family, friends and my co-residents in The Sustainable City, I was able to accomplish the task.”
The challenge undertaken by Dolores is hoped to inspire the young generation of Arabs to challenge themselves and rally behind noble causes that are important to the community today, as challenging one’s aptitude leads to self-growth and development.
In other achievements, Dolores was the first Arab to summit Mount Manaslu, the eighth highest mountain in the world at 8,156 meters above the sea level, located in the Himalayas, and regarded as the fourth most dangerous for climbers, due to the risk of avalanches.
She had also summited the Mera Peak in Nepal at 6,476 metres; Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak at 5,895 metres above sea level; and Mt. Elbrus, the highest mountain in Europe, towering at 5,642 metres above sea level.
Dolores works closely with The Sustainable City to raise awareness for the United Nation Sustainable Development Goals including climate change, sustainable cities and communities, and gender equality.
