Colorado-based mountaineer Erin Parisi first summited one of the Seven Summits, Tanzania’s Kilimanjaro, as a man in 2011. In 2016, she came out publicly as a woman and has since challenged herself to become the first transgender mountaineer to complete all of them. Transending, from Stept Studios, with support from Merrell, provides a glimpse into how she’s preparing for that feat.
