#1 Kathy Ferguson May 1964
This nice black and white portrait of Kathy Ferguson taken in May 1964 shows the summit cairn prior to the construction of the current directional plinth. The summit was established as a trigonometric point in 1958. The current directional table was built in 1970.
The first woman to climb the rock was Isabella Foy who ascended with her husband and son on the on the 28th of May 1936. The second woman to have climbed the rock and left her name in the small tin on the cairn was Englishwoman, Beryl Miles, Authoress of The Stars My Blanket, who made the ascent in mid 1951.
