Danielle Fisher is making an attempt to become the youngest person
to reach the top of the seven summits, the highest point on each of the seven
continents. Her plan is to finish the summits off this May on the top of Mount
Everest. If she is successful she will hold a new record at just 19 years old.
Currently, the youngest person to reach the top of the seven summits was 23
yrs young at the time.
Danielle is from Skagit County, WA and has grown up climbing with
her father in the Cascade Mountains. Together they had climbed Mt. Adams, Mt.
Baker and Mt. Rainer all by the time Danielle was 15 years old. In January of
2003 she and her father climbed Aconcagua, the tallest peak in South America.
After the success of that climb Danielle decided to make an attempt at
becoming the youngest person to climb the seven summits.
In July of 2003 she climbed the highest peak in Africa, Mount
Kilimanjaro and the highest peak in Europe, Russia’s Mount Elbrus. In 2004
Danielle climbed Australia’s Mount Kosciusko in January and climbed Denali in
May. She is hoping to reach the summit of Antarctica’s Mount Vinson this
January and Everest in May.
Danielle does most of her climbing with these days with Mike
Woodmansee, a family friend who has become Danielle’s mentor. She is currently
taking the year off from Washington State University to climb, but also to
raise money to support her expeditions. Danielle was diagnosed in the sixth
grade with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD); she hopes to be a model example
to others with this disorder in proving that one can lead a normal life
through dedication and hard work.
