Press/Media

Lisa’s climbing has been featured in many videos and on NBC TV, OLN TV, at the Banff Mountain Film Festival, the Teluride Film Festival, the Reel Rock Film Tour and other festivals around the world. Her name and image has appeared many times in US magazines and newspapers to record her climbing achievements and some of these are no doubt lost in the pile. In addition she has been mentioned in publications outside the US, such as a double-page spread in the French magazine Vertical, covers of the French magazine Grimper and the Spanish magazine Escalar, several mentions in British magazines, and even full features or photo-features and interviews in magazines from Japan to South America.
