Detailed Biography of Stacy Allison
As far back as the history of human beings goes, men have sought to reach greater and greater heights and break down new barriers and walls concerning want humans can and cannot do. And just as men have made these journeys, women have been not too much further behind, forging their own paths. So naturally, after a man climbed eight miles of ice into the sky to reach the peak of the world’s tallest mountain, Mount Everest, women summiteers were not too far behind.
Stacy Allison bears the unique distinction of being the first American woman in history to reach the hallowed peak of Mount Everest. A lifelong lover of climbing, that Stacy Allison appearance atop the world’s highest peak came in 1988. By the time of that Stacy Allison appearance on Mount Everest, she had successfully climbed many mountains around the world, a desire that had gripped her from a young age.

Throughout her career, she has authored or co-authored at least two books, including “Beyond the Limits: A Woman’s Triumph on Everest” and “Many Mountains to Climb: Reflections on Competence, Courage and Commitment.”
