The First Woman To Climb Mount Everest, Dead At 77


Junko Tabei, the first woman to climb the
world's highest peak, has died at age 77.
Tabei reached the 29,000-foot summit of Mount
Everest in 1975. She was 35 at the time.
She died on Thursday at a hospital outside of
Tokyo. She was diagnosed with cancer four years
ago, but that did not stop her from mountaineering,
it said.
Her milestones went beyond Mount Everest.
In 1992, the Japanese climber conquered the so-
called "Seven Summits" -- becoming the first
woman to scale the highest mountains on seven
continents. The seven summits comprise
Kilimanjaro, Denali, Elbrus, Aconcagua, Carstensz
Pyramid, Vinson and Everest.
Her last climb was Japan's Mount Fuji with a
group of high school students in 2011, according to
Japan's state broadcaster NHK.
