Sierra Club Outing, 1933, The annual trip of the Sierra Club this last summer reflected the increasing interest in high mountaineering in that organization. Two traverses of Mt. Humphreys were made, thirty-one persons climbed the summit pinnacle of Mt. Darwin and twenty-three reached the top of the seldom- visited Mt. Haeckel. Two new routes were found on the Devils Crags which had been climbed but twice prior to 1933, and the northwest ridge of the Middle Palisade was climbed for the first time as well as several ascents being made by the Farquhar-Hall route. Several ascents of the North Palisade were made and one party traversed to Mt. Sill. In addition, a number of first ascents were made on minor peaks. The 1934 outing is scheduled to be in Yosemite National Park and it is to be expected that club members will find a field for new climbs even in that relatively well-climbed-over section.
