In November 2020, Esther Dingley was a 37 year old British woman who went on a 3 day hiking trip alone in the Pyrenees mountains, near the border of France and Spain. When she failed to return, her family reported her missing. She never came back. Her body was found at the bottom of a cliff, by her partner, who carried out an intensive search to find her. The cause of her fall was accidental: the result of wearing worn out boots that caused her to slip and fall off a cliff.


As I’ve mentioned before in previous posts, hiking solo is a risk. If you get lost, injured, or sick there is no one there to help you. Electronic devices may not work in remote areas. This leaves you helpless. And even if you contacted help and got through, it may take hours for them to reach you. In that space of time, you’re situation becomes deadly.
