Self-described ‘climbing addict’ Oh Eun-Sun from South Korea became the first woman to scale the world’s 14 highest peaks. Korean television filmed her at the summit of Mount Annapurna on Tuesday April 27, 2010. She has been climbing for 13 years, is 44 years old, weighs 101 pounds and is 5′ tall.

“I want to share this joy with the Korean people, thank you,” she said when she reached the top, a 13 hour climb from her camp.
