Four women take on Mount Snowdon dressed in their underwear to ‘prove a point’

A group of four friends managed to climb Mount Snowdon dressed in just their underwear.

Abi Gentle-Spens, Maria Cairns, Lorna Turner and Cassie Davey completed the impressive challenge in just four-and-a-half hours.

After reaching the summit in their bras and knickers, they toasted their achievement with a bottle of prosecco.

The pals, from Margaret, Kent, decided to take on the test to raise money and awareness for the mental illness charity Rethink.

Although they were scared to start with, they said they decided they could do it to “prove a point” about body confidence.

They had initially planned to climb the mountain in Wales last year before the coronavirus pandemic hit.

And after the lockdown eased, they met for a drink in a pub and decided to hike up the 1,085 metre (3,559ft) high peak wearing their underwear.

They now want to push themselves even further and scale Ben Nevis in Scotland, which stands at 1,345 metres (4,421 ft).

Mum-of-two Abi, 35, said: "We all have various reasons we hold mental health close to our hearts and wanted to do this.

"We talked about climbing it in our underwear and were a bit unsure because of body confidence issues but then decided we could do it to prove a point.”

Cassie, 26, said: "Not everyone is going to look the same, everyone is different.

"It's all about people's opinions of each other.

“You just have to be a bit more of a role model and show you don't care what people think.

"Initially we were all a bit scared, and we got there and started off in our bras and then just went, sod it, let's do the whole thing and took the bottoms off."

Lorna, 37, said: "We've done Snowdon and thought well we may as well try to conquer them all.

“Ben Nevis is quite a big step up but we think that we can do it.

"It's about body confidence and showing that if we can do it anyone can, and trying to give people a bit more confidence with their mental health and everything else."
