Junko Tabei

Junko Tabei

CooperToons fears a little explanation is in order, although it probably shouldn't be.

Junko Tabei was the first - that's the first - lady to climb Mount Everest. Ms. Tabei reached the summit on May 6, 1975. Except for some minor problems - like an avalanche that covered the entire climbing party and rendered Junko unconcious until she was rescued - she made it to the top without a hitch.
