Explorer’s Club of Pittsburgh. The club had another active year with membership growing to over 150. In addition to vertical caving and rock-climbing programs, the ECP sponsored two foreign expeditions to Nanga Parbat and to the Santa Marta range in Colombia. There were trips to the ’Gunks, the Tetons, and to Pidgeon Mountain, Alabama, for caving. Members helped in a major cave rescue at Twiggs Cave, Maryland, and appeared in several climbing scenes from the new film, Dawn of the Dead. Details of the Nanga Parbat expedition and the deaths of our members, George Bogel and Bob Broughton, appear elsewhere in this Journal.
