EverestHistory.com:  Marija stremfelj


MARIJA STREMFELJ First Slovenian women to summit Everest-1990. Also the first woman to Summit with her husband at the same time!

At the age of 33 Marija was in her prime, well conditioned, prepared and in the company of good team members. Her summit was not assured but it proved inevitable.

Alpine and sport climbing are integral parts of her life. She has well over 500 tours world wide including Himalayas. Everest in 1990, Cho Oyu in 1995 (her third 8000m+ summit), Karakorum in 1986 and Pamir in 1982.

One could attribute her success to having come from a family of ten siblings where it would be a daily accomplishment just to be heard and seen. Being surrounded by beloved Alps from her youth, it is small wonder that she is an alpinist and a climber.

In most of the information one sees related to her, inevitably her husband is mentioned. That he is her climbing companion is no doubt beneficial, however, her own merit, strength and endurance are required for each step, cliff hanger and vertical expose. Accordingly, Marija is a woman of accomplishment, national pride and Id like to think an image of strength that all women aspire to.

Yes, you did good girl, real good.
