Stacy Allison was the first American woman to reach the summit of Mount Everest, the world's highest mountain, in 1988.
Stacy Allison began climbing while a student at Oregon State University. She attempted her first major climb at age 21 on Mount Huntington. Her climbing partner broke his ax only 200 feet from the top, and they were forced to turn around. She continued climbing, and in 1988 became the first American woman to reach the summit of Mount Everest.
She is the co-author with Peter Ames Carlin of "Beyond the Limits: A Woman's Triumph on Everest" and the author of "Many Mountains to Climb: Reflections on Competence, Courage, and Commitment."
