Monthly Social / Speaker Night

Join us on June 27th at Mahoney and Sons (Stamps Landing) for our "start of summer" social event. Catch up with friends, meet new people, and make some big summer plans!!

Local IFMGA mountain guide Julia Niles joins us to share some of her tales of climbing and skiing from South Africa to our backyard.
In light of Alex Honnold's recent free solo ascent of El Capitan in Yosemite, and her friend Ueli Steck's recent death on Nuptse in the Himalaya, Julia will present a show about how risk in our mountain pursuits interacts with our passion - and how "flow" state compels us to continue to pursue these potentially dangerous goals. From adventures in the backyard to far-away continents, Julia will talk about her own journey with soloing and risk, how mountain pursuits have "saved her life," and the ways in which being a mother of two young children complicates this balance.
