Women on High

The Boston Globe has a small
gallery of photos from the recent
Women On High expedition. The
expedition by a team of five women was planned to honor and recreate the historic ascents of Mont Blanc, Europe’s
highest peak, by it’s first female conquorers: Maria Paradis in 1808 and Henriette d’Angeville in 1838. The climb
coincided with the publication of  “Women on High: Pioneers of Mountaineering,” by Rebecca A.
Brown, also a member of the team.

The entire team suceessfully summitted during a one-day weather window.  ”We were exhilarated. We toasted the
women who came before us. The level of respect I had for them grew enormously.”
