Two SPers Getting it on in Pasadena Nov 26th

by mrchad9 » Thu Oct 24, 2013 7:03 pm

Well unfortunately this is midweek and a bit of a drive for me so I will have to miss the second opportunity to poke the snake with a stick...

And btw whoever said you can't meet folks to climb with on SP?

For those of you in southern California there is a chance to meet two members who hooked up in our casual encounters forum on SP. Vitaliy and Hamik are giving a presentation on their two-month trip to Peru, and if you haven't seen any of the pictures or read either of their blogs yet just know that the outing was pretty impressive and the views... well they were ok too...

It is on the Caltech campus sponsored by the American Alpine Club on Tuesday, November 26 at 7:00 PM... no costs. Someone please go and give them a hug and a kiss for me ok?

Here is the link: M&M Slideshow Alpine Ice and Rock in Peru

Oh...... there is free food and free beer too.

Are those pics in a sequential order from one climb? If so, no wonder they are hugging each other. :)

Thank you for posting Chad! There will be some photos from outings we did together as well. :)

Last two were photos of us climbing Chacraraju. First photo was from Alpamayo/Quitaraju trip.

For those who are interested in coming, we will talk about climbing stuff around United States as well (Bugaboos, Mt. Denali, Evolution Traverse c2c). Will include slides from big walls, alpine climbs, ice routes and rock routes. In Cordillera Blanca we successfully climbed 8 peaks above 5000M half of which were above 6000M peaks, as I remember. I hope to be helpful and talk about logistics as well as how accessible climbing in Peru really is. AND encourage everyone to get out on own adventures.

We will talk about:

hanging out

Molesting animals
Image

Posing for camera
Image

Getting pumped above small camming units
Image

Traversing below and on top of scary cornices
Image

Playing with dolls when you are on serious climbs
Image

And for those who can tolerate us talking for two hours there will be free food!!! :D
