Charlie Houston, Yvon Chouinard, Bob Bates, Bob Craig, Ed Viesturs, and more!

Hall_logoSave the date for a night of mountaineering lore on April 10, 2010, as we celebrate  the accomplishments of four great figures in American mountaineering: Charlie Houston, Bob Bates, Bob Craig, and Yvon Chouinard

On April 10th, the American Mountaineering Museum will celebrate the first annual mountaineering gala and induction into the Hall of Mountaineering Excellence. The award goes to these four individuals to recognize their commitment and contributions to the sport of mountaineering as well as their accomplishments while not wearing crampons and a rope. 

The event will feature Yvon Chouinard and Bob Craig in the flesh; family and friends of Bates and Houston – who sadly passed on recently – will be in attendance to accept awards on their behalf. Additionally, the evening will feature a keynote presentation by Ed Viesturs, a climber whose accomplishments speak for themselves.

So, mark your calendars and come on down to the American Mountaineering Museum on April 10, 2010, for an event not to be missed! Rub elbows with some greats of American mountaineering past, present, and future, celebrate the lives and accomplishments of those who have directed our passions, and have a great time!

    What an event this will be! I am very jealous of all those who attend it. Shame it was not here in England UK.
