First Woman to Summit Mount Rainier
On August 9,1890, Fay Fuller made herstory by becoming the first woman to reach the summit of Mount Ranier. If you visit Mount Ranier National Park, hike to Fay Peak to feel a bit of Fay's spirit. Fay Peak, named in honor of Fay Fuller, is a double-summit mountain within the Park. BTW... Fay would climb Mount Ranier a second time on July 27,1897. Climb on, girl!
