Join the Colorado Mountain Club Fort Collins Group for an inspirational evening as Hannah Wittmeyer, local (aspiring) alpinist, shares her trip and successful summit of 22,841’ Aconcagua with her friend, Rob. She will provide trip-specific insights from her unguided ascent of the Normal Route, and then invite you to join a broader discussion of new-age alpinism: the culture, gear, training, and ethics surrounding the sport. Let's have a fun evening while enjoying Odell's tap room beverages too!

Hannah Wittmeyer is an avid mountaineer, trail runner, cross-country skier, and adventure racer. She has tackled many amazing challenges such as the Triple Bypass bicycle race, numerous 14’ers, 36-hour triathlon race, and Argentina’s 22,841’ Aconcagua. Although not an aspiring ‘professional’ mountaineer, Hannah enjoys studying the trajectories of professional mountaineers, along with the history and limits pushed in high-altitude conditions. Many alpinists aspire to tackle one, some, or all of the acclaimed Seven Summits. Among the most accessible of these is Aconcagua, leading thousands to attempt its various routes every year.

When Hannah is not in the midst of a recreational mountain challenge, she works for the Bohemian Foundation, plays banjo, enjoys group acrobatics, music and good times with friends. You do not want to miss this special evening with such an inspiring young athlete!
