“Eventually the weight if the world… slides away. For when it's just you and the rock and the ice and the snow, life always makes sense.”


Stacy Allison 1958
Stacy Allison is the "First American woman to summit Mt. Everest." At 18 years Stacy began climbing. Within three years, she reached the summit of Mt. McKinley, the highest point in North America. She then became a part of the first successful women's ascent of Ama Dablam, known as Nepal's Matterhorn. After a failed summit attempt on Mt Everest, Stacy determinedly returned to historically reach the peak on September 29, 1988. She later became the leader of a successful K2 expedition, the world's second highest mountain, and considered to be the world's most difficult mountain to climb. Stacy is an author, professional speaker and owner of her own construction company. Visit our Adventure Woman Radio and the Armchair Adventurer to learn more about Stacy.
