Girl, 6 with cerebral palsy climbs Pen Y Fan – BBC News

A six year old girl with cerebral palsy has defied the odds and climbed Pen Y Fan for the first time.

Imogen Ashwell-Lewis got to the summit of south Wales’ highest peak in a modified four-wheeled mountain bike.

The bike was created by Project ENDURO, a collaboration between experts at Swansea University, Gower College Swansea and University of Wales Trinity Saint David.

Imogen was joined by more than 40 supporters who helped pull her along.

Project ENDURO loaned the bike to her for the climb, with designers at the charity’s innovation centre making the modifications needed to support her on the route.
