Mount Everest remains shrouded in mystique. For adventure climbers, conquering Everest is still the pinnacle, the ultimate achievement. Sue Fear is one of a handful of Australians who have achieved this feat in one of the most challenging, unforgiving but ultimately one of the most fulfilling of all adventure sports.
But how did a sheltered schoolgirl from Sydney's North Shore find herself at the top of the world, only the second Australian woman to climb Everest, the first via the treacherous north face, and only the first Australian woman to have climbed four of the world's 14 peaks higher than 8,000 metres? 'Fear No Boundary' is the inspiring story of how this unassuming woman overcame many setbacks, disappointments and challenges to reach her goal.
'Fear No Boundary' chronicles the events that set Sue Fear on her path to Everest following her decision to make travel and adventure guiding her profession. Sue's celebration of her fortieth birthday on top of Mount Everest in May 2003 and the nail-biting climb from Base Camp to the summit provides a framework for the book. Ultimately Sue's inspirational message is one of hope - ordinary people can achieve extraordinary things.
