An accomplished mountaineer,
was the first North American woman to conquer Mount Everest. A true inspiration. Born in Halifax, raised in Vancouver. In 1977 Sharon Wood climbed Canada's highest mountain, Mt. Logan. She climbed in Alaska, Argentina, Peru, and then Nepal. On May 20, 1986 she reached the summit of Mount Everest."The first time I tied into a rope, I was twelve years old and there was no looking back. I just really identified with the scent of the forest, the alpine, and the beautiful surrounding mountains. That is when I first fell in love with the mountains, or recognized home I would say."
