Chicago Mountaineering Club

Chicago Mountaineering Club. During 1957 our organization sponsored 14 local outings, which averaged about 40 people on each occasion. On non-sponsored weekends numerous groups climbed in the various local areas. Several members climbed in the Alps, and others in the mountains of the United States and Canada.

The club’s official Western Outing was held in the Lake O’Hara region of British Columbia with 52 members and guests participating. Although none of the major peaks was attained owing to adverse weather, the climbing activities were nevertheless of interest and great benefit to every one.
