Mera Peak: An Introduction to the 'Roof of the World'
Free for the public
***IMPORTANT: Member meeting are open to the public, please help get the word out! Don't miss out!!***
The Himalaya extends 1,500 miles from Bhutan to Pakistan and contain the tallest mountains in the world. The small country of Nepal falls almost entirely within the great range, and holds more than half of the fourteen 8,000 meter (26,246’) peaks and some of the most extreme expedition climbing anywhere. For those not lucky enough to have months of expendable time to climb a single summit, Nepal has 28 ‘trekking peaks,’ a collection of summits between 5800 - 6500 meters (19,028’- 21325’), most of which still require technical glacier skills. This talk will discuss the Nepal region, trip logistics and personal experience of climbing Mera Peak, one of the highest trekking peaks in Nepal with views of 5 of the 6 highest mountains in the world including Mount Everest.

The Arizona Mountaineering Club has been teaching outdoor rock climbing for over 50 years. As an all-volunteer organization, AMC is able to offer the most comprehensive training at a very low cost to members. This rock school is for new climbers or anyone who learned from friends, but wants to fill in knowledge gaps and learn the current Best Practices in rock climbing over the course of 4 evenings and 3 all-day weekend sessions.
