Junko Tabei

Posted 22/10/2016

I was very sorry to read of the death of Junko Tabei, the first woman to summit Everest and to complete the Seven Summits. I was delighted to find her signature in the summit log at the top of Mount Vinson in Antarctica, when I climbed it in 2004 and then added my own name to that list. RIP to a mountaineering legend.
