The Colorado College Mountain Club. The year 1965 marked the 20th anniversary for the dub. Following the custom established over the past years, we continued to hold our weekly meetings and week-end climbs in the Colorado Rockies. The Pikes Peak area particularly was used for snow and ice climbing and cross-country skiing. During the summer two members traveled to Peru for some Andean climbing. We were very sorry to learn of the death of our school doctor, Roger Whitney, who was killed while climbing in Peru. The club resumed in the fall with increased membership. The activities included ascending some of the state’s "fourteeners” and conducting rock-climbing schools. The club also devoted some energy to its plans for hosting Mountaineers’ Week-end, an outing for campus climbing groups in the Rocky Mountain area to be held in the spring of 1966.
