Description

Raise a glass with the American Alpine Club in celebration of climbers who give back. Dine, drink, and dance as we recognize those who better their communities.

This will be the 3rd Annual Excellence in Climbing Celebration, and undoubtedly the best one yet! Come peruse silent auction items ranging from gear to art to trips. Grab a tasty cocktail while you try your hand at the wine ring toss. After sampling the variety of delicious foods, the program will begin.

The highlight will undoubtedly be inducting the 2018 Hall of Mountaineering recipients. Past inductees into this esteemed hall include Libby Sauter, Tom Frost, Yvon Chouinard, Geoff Tabin, and more. Also presented at this year's event will be the esteemed Ad Carter Literary Award, recognizing excellence in climbing literature.

Back due to high demand: The AAC's Excellent Dance Party featuring Colorado's own 80's cover band—The Goonies! Last year's after party was off the hook with glow sticks, inflatable guitars, and dance moves so spicy they left people begging for more. This is one party you do not want to miss!

Last year's event sold out. So be sure to get your #ExcellenceInClimbing ticket before they're gone.
