I discovered climbing in 2006. I climbed Mount Everest in 2008. In 2009, I made two climbing ascents that had never been climbed by a female. In 2010, I opened five new climbing routes which later were referenced in the American Alpine Journal. Late in 2010, I left my banking career to live my climbing passion. A year later, I became a world top-ranked mountaineer and set a new climbing world record. I climbed 5 mountains above 8000m (26,000ft) in only five months. In 2012, I will undertake the challenge of climbing nine of the highest mountains in the world in two years’ time. Upon successful completion, I will be the first French and the 3rd women in the world to tackle one of the most difficult human endeavors on the planet -- an ascent of the world's 14 elite 8,000-meter peaks
