American adventurer. In a history-making all-women expedition of ten mountain climbers, Beardsley and Vera Komarkova were the only pair able to scale successfully the 26,502 feet of the great Himalayan mountain, Annapurna, in Nepal. Frostbite and other problems took a toll on the remainder of the group. They estimated that they reached the top of Annapurna about 2:00 to 3:00 PM on 10/15/1978 (28 N.34, 83 E.50). The team had devoted a year and a half in careful preparation for this great adventure.

Two days later, two of the women were killed in the climb. A full account is given in the National Geographic Magazine March 1979.

Beardsley had her second divorce in August 1979.
