I ran across her book, All That Glitters, a few years ago, and I loved it.  She shares an in-depth look into her journey of healing through ice-climbing, along with many other rad and adventerous stories.  The book is gripping.

I then heard her speak later on at the Banff Film Festival.  Her openness, honesty, and transparency really spoke to me.   One of her stories has stuck with me; I carry it with me when I doubt myself in the outdoors.

About a month ago I meekly approached Margo in the climbing gym asking for her support in my athletic pursuits.  I’m a complete stranger.  Margo didn’t even hesitate and gladly jumped at the opportunity to help out another female pursuing mountain athletics.
