First U.S. Woman Stands Atop Summit of the World: Did you know? On September 29th (that’s today!), 1988, Stacy Allison of Portland, Oregon became the first American woman to summit the world’s highest peak, Mt. Everest. It was her second attempt at the peak. She spent 29 days clambering up the southeast ridge of the Himalayan giant before reaching the icy summit of the world. At 29,305 feet above sea level, she stood in the rarified air where jetliners fly and temperatures often dip beneath ‑30F and there is not enough oxygen to survive for an extended period of time. Everest is considered the ultimate test-piece of a serious mountaineer.
