Harvard Mountaineering Club. The club continues to encourage climbing at Harvard. Membership this year has grown to 120 under-graduates, with as many graduate and alumni members. We introduce beginners to technical climbing on afternoon trips to small local areas, such as the “quarries,” and on two ice-climbing trips to Huntington Ravine on Mount Washington. Members also take weekend trips to various places in New Hampshire and Connecticut for longer rock and ice climbs.

During the summer members were in Boulder and Estes Park, Colorado, and in the Tetons in search of more alpine experience. We hope to revive the traditional climbing camp in 1981 and do some mountaineering in the Bugaboos or in Alaska.

We sponsored slide lectures by such climbers as Andy Embick, Henry Barber, A1 Rubin, and Bob Palais. The club continues to maintain its cabin in Huntington Ravine.
