2013 CMC Annual Dinner

Postby Alpinist » Tue Jan 08, 2013 6:20 pm

The CMC Annual Dinner has been scheduled for March 16th in Aurora, IL. Everyone is welcome. Drop me a note if you plan to attend. Hope to see you there!

The Chicago Mountaineering Club (CMC) is proud to have Barry Blanchard as our guest speaker for the 2013 CMC Annual Dinner on Saturday March 16th at the Two Brothers Roundhouse. 205 North Broadway, Aurora, IL 60506.

Barry Blanchard (born March 29, 1959 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada) is one of North America's top alpinists, noted for pushing the standards of highly technical, high- risk alpine climbing in the Canadian Rockies and the Himalayas.

He first came to note in 1983 with the first ascent of Andromeda Strain on Mount Andromeda in Alberta, Canada with David Cheesmond and Tim Friesen. In 1984, he climbed the North Spur of Rakaposhi, Pakistan with Dave Cheesmond and Kevin Doyle. With David Cheesmond, he climbed the North Pillar of North Twin, Alberta in 1985. Rather than resting on his laurels, he has continued to push the limits of alpinism since, including eight trips to Asia to climb in the Himalayas and Karakoram.
