Stanford Alpine Club. The Stanford Alpine Club continues to emphasize preparation for and climbing in Yosemite Valley through weekly local practice climbs. Many informally organized trips supplemented scheduled club trips to Yosemite Valley in the spring and during the Thanksgiving vacation. The annual Tuolumne Meadows invasion, designed to introduce new members to technical mountaineering, was made in early October. Although there were no official club activities during the summer, members were active climbing in the Canadian Rockies, Cascades, Tetons, Colorado, the Bugaboos, and, of course, the Valley and Sierra Nevada. In addition, the club sponsored, in the form of three members plus a tent, a summer expedition which climbed Mounts Lucania and Steele in the St. Elias Range, making a second ascent of Lucania by a new route from the north side.
