Lucy Westlake
Set world record as the youngest female to summit all 50 U.S. state highpoints on June 20, 2021, at the age of 17.
Currently attempting to be the youngest female to complete the Explorers Grand Slam (sponsorship needed for Everest and North/South Pole expeditions)
_______________________________________________________________________________
My highpointing adventure began at age seven when my parents started talking with a local in a Lynch, Kentucky, coffee shop, “Kentucky’s highest peak is just up the road; you should check it out.” Standing atop Black Mountain looking at the USGS survey marker, we began to wonder where other state highpoints were located. My mother turned the opportunity into a geography lesson and we spent the next four hours driving home to Louisville, Kentucky, looking up and reading about state highpoints. The following summer we planned our trip to Oregon (driving, of course, that’s what we always do), mapping out highpoints along the way. That summer my dad and I climbed seven highpoints. For the next five years, we planned our vacations around highpointing.

In July 2016, at the age of 12, I became the youngest female to summit the lower 48 state highpoints. I attempted Denali at age 13, but never had the change for a summit bid due to weather. Four years later, at the age of seventeen, my father and I stood atop Denali together completing our 10-year highpointing adventure while setting the world record as the youngest female to summit all 50 of the U.S. state highpoints. I accomplished my goal, but more importantly, I have been transformed - not by the record, but by the mountains. The sight of a billion snow crystals casting light’s first radiance upon the surrounding glaciers, knowing I can ascend those glorious peaks - that is empowering. For me, it’s no longer about breaking records, it’s about pushing limits. I thank the mountains for stripping away all limitations, leaving me with no summit to end my ascent. I will never stop climbing. Not just physical mountains, but the mountains that life presents. Dream big. We’re all in this together.
