Phyllis Munday: Mountaineer
In 1924 Phyllis (Phyl) Munday did what no other woman had done before - reached the summit of Mt. Robson. She climbed close to 100 mountains in her lifetime, many of those first ascents. She honed her outdoor skills as a Girl Guide leader and remained active in Guides throughout her life. During the 1920s and 1930s, Phyl and her partner Don Munday pioneered exploration into the heart of the Coast Mountains.
