Sierra Club. The regular summer outings of the Sierra Club in the Sierra Nevada gave opportunity for a great deal of relatively easy climbing at elevations from 12,000 to 14,496 ft. The Base Camp spent four weeks beneath the 14,000-ft. peaks seven miles S. of Mt. Whitney, and 105 of the party spent the night on the summit. The High Trip was in the region of the Kaweah peaks, and a number of them were climbed. A second trip to the Teton range was led by John Thune. The primary objective was knapsacking through the remote back country of the park, with an ascent of the Grand Teton and some of the other fine peaks of the range. A knapsack trip is scheduled from August 1st to 10th in the wild Kintla region of the N.W. corner of Glacier National Park. Members of the A.A.C. are always welcome on any Sierra Club trip.
