Manaslu Slide Show October 24 - Ft. Collins

Postby Alan Arnette » Mon Oct 21, 2013 9:33 am

An evening about my recent summit of Nepal's Manaslu at 26,759' (8,156 m). It was a rewarding climb as I started the trek at almost sea level in Western Nepal. I hope you can join and please invite your friends and family. Open to everyone, free and no agenda. Just some climbing talk :)

Location: Ft. Collins Old Town Library: Community Room 2
Time: 7:00 - 9:00PM

Topics will include:

- my talks with the legend Ms. Elizabeth Hawley
- my talks with Everest legend Russell Brice
- The changing Sherpa Culture
- a quick review of oxygen system used at high altitude
- the Manaslu Trek
- Climbing the world's 8th highest mountain
- Helicopters in climbing

For training I climbed 25 of our 14ers from February to August after having knee surgery in late January.

Read more about the climb at http://www.alanarnette.com/climbs/manaslu.php

I'm working to find a Denver venue for a future presentation.

I think we'd be there, Alan, if it weren't for the fact its on a weeknight and we live in Vail :) If you do a show up here, we'd no doubt attend. Looks like a great evening.

Things are looking like I can make it. El Chupacabra and I are going to hit La Luz for $2 pints before the show if anyone wants to join. We'll keep the beverages to a seminar listening level!

Looking forward to seeing everyone tonight. The talk will start a couple minutes past 7 to let people get settled, go for about an hour then time for Q&A and mingling. Feel free to invite your friends and family. I am working to get a venue for a Denver presentation in November.
