RISING: BECOMING THE FIRST NORTH AMERICAN WOMAN ON EVEREST Sharon Wood 2019 1st edition New Hardcover

Add to wish list


Detailed Product Description
USA, 2019, 1st edition. 236 pp, photos. On May 20, 1986, high on Mount Everest, Sharon Wood was ready to give up. Snow plumes swirled off the summit ridge and spilled down the North Face, engulfing her. A four-hundred-foot high rock wall, the crux of the Hornbein Couloir, loomed above. Then Wood's partner handed her the end of the rope and said, "Your lead."

Hours later, Wood became the first North American woman to reach the summit, and the first woman in the world to do so via the difficult West Ridge. Her ascent of the West Ridge by a new variation, without Sherpa assistance, is an accomplishment that has never been repeated. New hardcover with Dust Jacket.
