EverestHistory.com: Ellen Miller


Ellen Miller is the 64th woman to Summit Everest. She is from the USA and is currently living in Vail, Colorado.

This Spring 2002, she became the first American woman to Summit Everest from both the North and the South.

Ellen Miller was a member of Russell Brice's Himalayan Experience Everest North Side Everest Expedition on 2001. She had previously summitted Cho Oyu with Russ in 2000. Other mountaineering experience includes summits of: Mustagh-Ata, China~ ski descent(1998), Mt. McKinley,  Aconcagua, Mt. Elbrus, Ecuador's volcanoes, Kilimanjaro, all 54 of Colorado's 14,000ft peaks. She lived in the French Alps for several seasons where she skiied, climbed and learned to paraglide.

Ellen lives in Vail, Colorado, where she works in athletic facility. Her background is as a sponsored competitive athlete during the last 15 years, competing internationally. Her first trip to Tibet was in 1993, when she qualified to run Fila's SkyMarathon, staged at 14,000ft on the Tibetan plateau. As well as participating in mountain running, snowshoeing, mountain
biking, and Nordic skiing competitions, she has competed in long multi-day, multi-discipline races including the Eco-Challenge in Patagonia and Borneo, and The Mild-Seven Outdoor Challenge in Western China. Several times teamed up with Himalayan/Everest guide Andy Lapkass, another endurance athlete. 

Mountain climbing, however, provides Ellen with a non-competitive arena, where she simply finds pleasure in the beauty of Nature.
