A.A.C., Sierra Nevada Section. Under leadership of Chairman Fred Johnson, Vice-Chairman Raffi Bedayn, and Secretary-Treasurer Howard Parker, the Sierra Nevada Section held four meetings during 1957. Included in the activities were programs by Jürg Marmet on Mount Everest, Brad Washburn on Mount McKinley, and Gil Roberts on Mount Logan. A gathering in May at Lee Stopple’s home in the Valley of the Moon, Sonoma County, afforded a fine outdoor atmosphere for dinner and a business meeting, with overnight camping for some.
Local members have been active in climbs in the Tetons, the High Sierra and Yosemite, in South America, and on Antarctic expeditions.
The section now has 65 members.
