Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania
September 22, 1994
First Deaf woman to ascend this summit.
As the only Deaf woman on the expedition, Heidi was awakened by her guide at midnight. There was a full moon, and as Heidi climbed the summit, the sun rose. It took her five hours to reach Uhuru Peak. Heidi arrived at the top with her guide, and became the first Deaf woman to reach the peak.
