Sierra Club. Sierra Club mountaineers continued to enjoy the mountain wildernesses. The year was memorable for the achievements of a few and for great satisfaction for many. Club mountaineers watched the sun set from the summit of Mount Everest and from unclimbed walls in the Alps and Logan Mountains, while others watched it rise over familiar forms in the Sierra and Rockies. We remembered the past. On Labor Day club mountaineers ascended the major peaks along the Sierra crest to celebrate the centennial of the first ascents of these mountains. We also looked forward by training new climbers and developing new techniques. 1963 was a culmination of the past and a direction for the future.
