A.A.C., Rocky Mountain Section. The section met twice during 1959. On November 20, in cooperation with the Rocky Mountain Rescue Group, we sponsored a program on Rakaposhi, which Dick Irvin presented before a group of about 220 people. The film and the commentary were magnificent; many people thought it to be the finest film they have seen on Himalayan mountaineering.
On December 5, the same day as the A.A.C. annual meeting and dinner in New York, the section met for a dinner meeting with about 30 persons, 14 of whom were members, in attendance. Again Dick Irvin was the speaker. He showed slides of the Southern Alps of New Zealand, where he made many fine climbs in the 1955-1956 season, including a new route on Mount Cook, which he did with Peter Robinson and Hamish McInnes.
