Speaking about their adventure, a team of local youth said they were unified in one goal - reaching the summit. No obstacle, including frostbite, dehydration or questions about gender norms could hold them back, they added.
Describing injuries, arduous overnight climbs and oxygen deprivation, one of the six women in the group said the team overcame "mental, physical and emotional struggles" to climb the 5,895 meters to the summit.
