In 2013, Kedrowski was traveling through Abottabad, Pakistan en route to the Gilgit-Baltistan Region of Northern Pakistan, when his climbing team heard of the massacre of 10 climbers on the nearby 8000-meter peak called Nanga Parbat. In the stand against terrorism, and in alliance to help save the tourism industry in Pakistan, many climbers and trekkers including Kedrowski refused to go back to their home countries. Kedrowski and a handful of his climbing teammates decided to stay and were successful in climbing into the Baltoro Region of Pakistan. The team trekked past Concordia and K2, arrived in their basecamp near the Pakistan-India border, and still reached a height of over 25,000'/7600m on Gasherbrum II in July of 2013.
Jon will also have copies of his recent best-seller "Sleeping on the Summits: Colorado 14er High Bivys."Doors open at 6:30pm, Presentation begins at 7pm.
