Chicago Mountaineering Club. During 1972 the club scheduled a greater than usual number of weekend outings at Devils Lake, Wisconsin. The popularity of the club’s campground near the lake brought together many non-members and climbing organizations on almost every weekend of the year. Overcrowding and group management is increasingly becoming a problem, and measures to improve this situation are being planned. The club did not conduct a summer outing this year; however, members climbed and hiked in many parts of the country and the world. Several members climbed in Peru with the Iowa Mountaineers. In the summer of 1973 the club will establish two camps in Bridger Wilderness area of the Wind River range, at Pyramid and Mays Lakes. Each camp will be limited to 20 people in accord with recent Forest Service regulations.
