Kick off the start of the climbing season! June 1, the community will gather in the home of the American Alpine Club for a festival celebrating all things climbing. Complete with carnival games, tours of the American Mountaineering Museum, an Open Air Vendor Village, food trucks and local beverages — the Excellence in Climbing Celebration has something for everyone! The highlight is inducting inspirational climbing heroes into the Hall of Mountaineering Excellence (H.o.M.E.). The 2019 honorees will be announced soon!
