Colin Haley - Portland - Sept 30th

Recommended Posts

World renowned alpine climber Colin Haley will be in Portland on Thursday, September 30th at 7pm at the Mazama Mountaineering Center to present a new route put up by himself and Norwegian climber Bjørn-Eivind Årtun called "Dracula" on the SE face of Alaska's Mount Foraker earlier this year. On this trip Colin and Bjorn spent the first 3 weeks acclimating and attempting to break the speed record for climbing the Cassin Ridge on Denali. After reaching the summit of Denali they headed for Mount Foraker and waited for a weather window. When a small window opened up they headed out with day packs on what turned out to be a 72 hour push. Read Colin's blog about the climb and come see and hear his presentation of the climb. Tickets are $10 at the door and proceeds will benefit the Mazama Expedition Grants Fund.


At a young age Colin has established himself among the top alpine climbers of the world. He is a Patagonia Ambassador and just a nice, humble guy to listen and talk to. Last year he gave a very well received slide show for the Mazamas and it sounds like this one is not to be missed.
