Iranian Exchange Climbers Head to Mt. Elbert · August 9, 2012

Front Range Member Melissa Alcorn wrote to us about the Iranian Women’s Climbing Exchange:

“The first phase of the cultural exchange between the AAC and the Alpine Club of Iran had highlighted rock climbing and hiking at Rocky Mountain National Park with operations based out of the hostel at the Colorado Mountain School in Estes Park. The bunk beds, showers, and ample kitchen and dining space were a fantastic facility to allow the group to solidify around a plan for the next stage of our program. The women from Iran wanted to stand on the top of Colorado and the American team got to work to make it happen.”

Dr. John All sent us this report from Peru:
“Expect a more detailed report once everyone is back in the US and information can be condensed. For now, here is a summary of our 2012 work:
