Hornbein and Scott--two legendary mountaineers--it must have been an extraordinary evening! Wish I could have been there.

Actually, the introductions went; Gary Neptune (Everest summiteer) introduced Tom Hornbein (Everest first traverse) who introduced Doug Scott (all-around mountaineering badass). Just didn't want to leave out our local guy. :-D

Wish I could have made it. Im sure it was great. Tom was in the audience when Stephen Venables spoke. Li'l guy but man were they, and still are, powerhouses.
Cool time to have been a climber. I feel lucky every time I get to hear their stories.
