Details

Join us for the 101st CMC Denver Group Annual Dinner. Phil Powers, Executive Director of the American Alpine Club will be our speaker.








Phil's topic is "Life Lessons From Mountains Big and Small"








Phil Powers will share a few highlights from his most notable climbs including the first ascent of Lukpilla Brakk’s West face in Pakistan, the first winter traverse of the Tetons’ Cathedral Peaks and the massive Washburn Face on the North side of Mount McKinley. He made ascents of K2 and Gasherbrum II without supplemental oxygen.








Powers will speak about the ways in which a few simple but important lessons from his most challenging climbs have served him in work and life. His lecture culminates with being dropped 75 feet to the ground in 2011, his subsequent recovery, and the lessons he learned. Spoiler alert: he is fully recovered and continues to be an active climber and skier and AAC Executive Director.
