Linda Norgrove's legacy for young Afghan climber

In 2010, Linda Norgrove from Lewis was seized by rebels in Afghanistan and was later killed during a rescue attempt.

The Linda Norgrove Foundation gave funding to Ascend, a US charity that supports young climbers in Afghanistan.

In August this year, Hanifa Yousoufi became the first Afghan woman to climb her country's highest peak, Mount Noshaq.
