I always had this greater vision for myself. Along the way, people were quick to tell me I wouldn't succeed. "You're too small, you aren't strong enough, you'll die up there." It's hard to drown those voices in my mind. There's still so much implicit bias about what a small woman can do. We have a long way to go for gender equality in the outdoors. But I have hope for the future. My friends at @rei are making a big effort to level the playing field for women in the outdoors. In 2017, they are putting women front and center by investing in stories, films, adventures and creating huge new opportunities for us to shine our brightest. I'm so grateful for their support and excited for the adventures ahead. #ForceofNature #bigmtndreams on the summit of the Pfeifferhorn before linking up the NE and NW couloirs in an epic outing yesterday with @emiliedrinkwater.
