Overview

Join us for a discussion and photographs of a climb of Aconcagua in 2007. A fifteen day trek and climb in the spectacular Argentinian Andes to the highest point in South America. A test of perseverance, a discovery of the many effects of altitude, a solo climb in the company of a multitude of other climbers, and always the incomparable beauty of the mountains. You must register for this event. We will e-mail you the Zoom meeting details on the day of the event around noon. The presentation will start at 7:00 pm. Maury Eldridge is a clinical psychologist, a grandfather and has been an occasional co-leader for the hiking/backpacking committee. He prefers to spend his time outdoors, both on the trail and on, in or under water. He undertook this climb when he was 56.
