Kitty Calhoun defies stereotypes. She's a southern belle that has been guiding for over 30 years ago on the highest peaks in Peru, Alaska, Bolivia, and Nepal. She's a co-owner of Chicks with Picks, a company that runs ice climbing, rock climbing, and skiing clinics for women. Her name is Kitty but her accomplishments in alpine climbing would be personified more by a mountain lion rather than a kitten.
I didn't really think about it [being the only female alpine climber]. I just followed my heart!
