Our New Era · November 12, 2013

our-new-era

Three years ago the American Alpine Club reached out to its members, wrote a plan, and embarked on a journey to become the national club that American climbers truly wanted and needed. Like any great expedition, that journey has been ambitious and challenging—and we have learned a lot along the way.

The AAC staff and board of directors have been given a fresh perspective on our mission and after a yearlong process, the board adopted the following statements that will guide us into a new era:

  • Our MISSION is to support our shared passion for climbing and respect for the places we climb.
  • Our VISION is a united community of competent climbers and healthy climbing landscapes.

To learn more about our new mission and vision visit our website.

2012 AAJ:

The 2012 hardcover AAJ is an exclusive, limited-edition (only 150 printed), hardbound, 400-page book, which features a special print of the Garhwal Himalaya, hand-signed by the artist Renan Ozturk. The print reflects Ozturk’s history-making first ascent of the Sharks Fin on Meru, a feature story in this edition.

2013 AAJ

The 2013 hardbound edition of the AAJ is dedicated to desert climbing pioneers Harvey Carter and Layton Kor, both of whom passed away while the AAJ was in production. The hardcover AAJ is an exclusive, limited-edition book, and only 150 were printed. Each book is hand-signed by Huntley Ingalls, who partnered with Kor on the two most important climbs in the Utah desert: Castleton Tower and the Titan (climbs which paved the way for Harvey Carter and others yet to come). Steve “Crusher” Bartlett’s photo of the Fisher Towers adorns the inside cover, and each copy also contains a special Collector’s Edition gloss insert with an essay written by Huntley Ingalls, entitled “The Colorado Plateau.”

Our Members: Film Director and Producer Jenny Wilson · November 1, 2013

Line Up with Title

AAC member Jenny Wilson shares how her film The Grand Rescue came about on our blog, Inclined.

“The Grand Rescue  is a story of a rescue that became legend. On the North Face of the Grand Teton in 1967, seven rescuers risked their lives to save a severely injured climber and his companion. The rescue took three harrowing days and pushed the team to new abilities. Remarkably, the injured climber criticized those who risked their lives to save his.” Read the full story on Inclined.
