“Packed with riveting stories from more than twenty-five outstanding women climbers, Leading Out illustrates with eloquence and power how women are challenged and transformed by their adventures in the mountains. Included here are fascinating historical accounts by early women climbers – from Gwen Moffat, one of the world’s first professional female guides, to Colette Richard, blind since age two, who summited Mont Tondu in 1960 – and gripping narratives of contemporary ascents, such as Bachendri pal’s tale of becoming the first Indian woman to stand on the top of Mount Everest.

Ranging in local from Nepal to South America to the Canadian Rockies, these stories of gutsy, high-spirited moutaineers are an inspiring testament o women’s daring and a thoroughly entertaining read for climbers and armchair travelers alike.”

Uitermate inspirerende verhalen – ook als je geen bergbeklimmer bent.
