A British diplomat based in Nepal has conquered Mount Everest - 70 years after her grandfather attempted it.
Ms Brocklebank's grandfather inspired her
Serena Brocklebank reached the top of the world's highest peak on Thursday.
She and other team members made it safely back to South Col and will continue the descent towards base camp on Friday, the expedition website said.
Her grandfather Tom was part of a 1933 expedition which had to turn back from the summit 20 years before the first proven conquering of the peak.
Ms Brocklebank said her grandfather's climb had been a source of inspiration.
She herself tried but failed to reach the summit two years ago.
She said she had fantasised about Everest but always thought: "Not me!"
