Wisconsin Hoofer Mountaineers. Devils Lake was the site for numerous outings in the spring, summer, and fall seasons. We are currently gathering material for a guide to the climbs in this area. Several week-end trips were also made to the Mississippi Palisades. During the winter there were slide-showings of the year’s trips and several lectures on such topics as "First Aid in the Mountains” and "Snow and Ice Safety Techniques.”

Five members greeted the new year 1958 on Pico de Orizaba in Mexico and also climbed Ixtaccihuatl and Popocatapetl. Owing in great part to fine weather the two-weeks June outing to the Tetons was unusually successful, with climbs made on Buck, Wister, Nez Perce, Grand Teton (Exum Route), Middle Teton, Rock Chuck, St. John, Owen (Koven route), and Teewinot. Other groups visited the Selkirks in September as well as the Bighorns, and the Cascades.
