Pioneers of the Peaks: Local Climbers Who Made History

The year-long celebration of Rocky Mountain National Park's 100th Anniversary continues as we head into March. This month offers several more events for park enthusiasts to celebrate their favorite national park. Of particular interest for hikers and climbers is a program called Pioneers of the Peaks: Local Climbers Who Made History, which will be held on March 30th. The description of this event is as follows:

Training in Rocky Mountain National Park presented by Harry Kent. For several decades, a small group of men and women made history exploring and ascending the summits surrounding the Estes Valley. In 2013 and 2014, the Estes Park Museum and the Estes Valley Library gathered their inspiring stories. This presentation is at 7 p.m. at the Estes Park Museum. It will highlight the training that Harry Kent and his partner Keith Lober did in preparation for their daunting winter ascent of the North Face of the Eiger in 1982!
