Honorary Membership in the AAC is not merely about climbing achievement. Jeff Lowe has already received the AAC’s Underhill Award which celebrates lifetime climbing achievement. It is fair to say that his climbing resume is probably unparalleled in American climbing history. Most informed people are aware of Latok I, Shipton Spire and his hundreds of superb rock routes. No need to dwell on that record here.
Honorary Membership in the AAC is also about vision and service to the climbing community. After the Chouinard revolution in ice climbing, Jeff’s vision brought it to another level. He is one of the fathers of modern mixed climbing. Innovative techniques, tools and clothing were brought to the worldwide community through books and videos.
This Sunday, July 19, in Ogden, Utah the AAC will celebrate Jeff Lowe’s achievements, vision and service to the worldwide community with Honorary Membership.
Bring: your favorite Jeff Lowe stories, swimsuits (if you want to swim), tennis racquets (if you want to play), some thing to share (food or drink)
Please RSVP so we know you are coming!
