  Mt. Everest 2005: Danielle Fisher


©EverestNews.com

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.
