Finding Elevation chronicles Thompson’s path from novice climber to world-class mountaineer, as she becomes only the second American woman to summit K2, considered by many to be the deadliest mountain in the world. More than a climbing memoir, Finding Elevation is a deeply personal examination of motivation and the human spirit. It is a story of what can happen when we finally stop letting others define our limits and instead trust that we are capable of more.
