Chicago Mountaineering Club

Chicago Mountaineering Club. Members were active in several mountain ranges during 1950. A Club party of 13 camped at Lake Isabelle, in the Arapaho group of the Colorado Front Range, from July 31st to August 10th, and climbed all the major peaks accessible from their camp. Members participating in the summer outings of other clubs made ascents in the Lake O’Hara, Maligne Lake and Mt. Robson sections of the Canadian Rockies, the Lyell-Ritter group in the Sierra Nevada, and the southern Wind Rivers. Other members climbed in the Tetons and the Alps.

Local activities included nine lectures on mountaineering subjects and seven excursions for rock-climbing practice. One winter outing was devoted to practice in ice climbing. During the spring a group of members completed Red Cross standard and advanced courses in first aid under the instruction of Harry Lumby.
