Timberline Mountain Guides - photos from their climbs in Alaska

Wednesday, July 13, 2005, Timberline Mountain Guides - Alaska at the Environmental Center in Bend, Oregon
Timberline Mountain Guide's Bob Lehman will show an array of slides from an American Mountain Guides Association Alpine Guides course that was held in the area in Sept of 2003. This show will provide insight to how guide's training is done in America. Pete Keane of Timberline Mountain Guides will show slides and talk about two trips to the region in 2002 and 2003, with climbs of the Mooses Tooth, Peak 11, 300 and Mt Barrille. Pete and Bob will give a short presentation of a climb of the West Aręte of Eldorado peak in the North Cascades. This is an amazing wilderness rock climb that is close to 3000 feet high surrounded by glaciers and other big peaks. The Ruth Gorge in Alaska is becoming a mecca for climbers looking for smaller peaks that are more technical. The Gorge hosts a number of smaller objectives in a spectacular setting, without the associated hazards of altitude and weather conditions that are prevalent on other big peaks in Alaska.
