Colorado College Mountain Club. This year the club hosted Mountaineers Weekend, gathering many western mountaineers for three days of climbing and antics at Turkey Rock. The club’s usual activities of rock schools and snow and ice schools have been expanded to include instructional slide series and lectures. Blanca Peak, Mount Sneffels, Mount Antero, Crestone Needle, and Quandary Peak are among climbs made of Colorado peaks. The club also organized a trip to Canyonlands in Utah. The CCMC was a sponsor of illustrated talks by Royal Robbins on Yosemite Valley and by Dick Dorworth of the 1968 ascent of Fitz Roy in Argentina.
