This website is about remembering Sue Fear, an Australian female high-altitude climber and adventurer.
Here is information about her achievements and the charities she worked with to help improve the lives of people in the developed countries she travelled in.
For those that came in contact with her, whether it was on one of her guided treks or climbs, or listening to one of her public talks, were inspired and motivated by her determination and passion for life and adventure travel.
In 2006, Sue was one of only ten women to have climbed five of the world’s 8000-metre mountains and the first Australian woman to climb Mt Everest via the technically difficult north face which made her Australia’s leading female high-altitude climber, in a field that was mostly male dominated.
Sue became an Ambassador for the Fred Hollows and the Australia Himalayan Foundations as well as a mentor with NSW Womensport. She was invited to talk at many schools during her career which influenced the students outlook in such a positive way.
She also spent a great deal of her time in the Himalayan mountains of Nepal, a country she was very fond of. Sue passed away in May 2006 while descending Nepal’s Mt Manaslu after reaching the summit.
