BEONLINEWITHAMC - Climbing Mt Whitney

In support of the national effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 and to minimize the risks to the most vulnerable among us, AMC will immediately begin the process of temporarily closing all lodging and foodservice facilities and suspending all in-person staff and volunteer led programming through June 3.

Trip dates: Wednesday, May 6, 2020 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM

Come join us on a slide show of a trip to Mount Whitney in the Sierra Nevadas. We'll see plenty of awesome photos and hear how the trip was set up, what we did to prepare, and the final three days to the summit and back. We'll also cover a few other options that anyone interested in summiting the highest peak in the contiguous United States may take. We'll have time for some questions and answers at the end. Presented by HB Leader Jim Robinson.
The presentation will begin at 7:00 PM and last approximately 1 hour.
All are welcomed to this virtual event. Please sign up below and the organizer will send out Zoom meeting details before the event.
