Dartmouth Mountaineering Club. The Dartmouth Mountaineering Club held its usual weekend trips to climbing areas in New England, including Orford, Whitehorse, Cathedral, and Franconia Notch. A new route was climbed on Owl’s Head, and Bartlett Tower, a frustrating building climb on the Dartmouth campus, was finally ascended. The club also taught rock-climbing classes for physical-education credit.

At the fall meetings members spoke and showed slides of climbs made during the summer. These included an ascent of Mount McKinley, first ascents in the Beartooths, the first ascent of the northwest ridge of Mount Citadel in Glacier National Park, and new routes in the Moraine Lake area in Alberta. Members also visited the Bugaboos, the Brooks Range, the Alaskan Coast Ranges, the Tetons, and the Wind Rivers.

The D.M.C. will publish a journal in May, 1965; copies will be available at $1.00 per copy from the club at 23 Robinson Hall, Hanover, New Hampshire.
