“The Old Breed” – Vantage Toilet Fundraiser:May 17


Recommended Posts



Saser Kangri II stood as the second highest unclimbed peak in the world until August of 2011 when Steve Swenson, Mark Richey and Freddie Wilkinson completed the first ascent.

This Piolet D’or Award winning climb is the subject of the film (shown for the first time at the AAC’s Annual Dinner in Boston) and is now premiering on the west coast.


Join Steve Swenson before and after the film for questions and socializing at the Mountaineers Program Center.


This event is a fundraiser for the Vantage permanent toilet project. As the climbing area has gotten more and more popular the impacts on the land are readily apparent. The WCC has been funding temporary toilets for the last few season, but this is just a stop-gap for a real solution.


The American Alpine Club, The Mountaineers and the WCC are joining forces on this very important project and we hope you will support us.

Night after tomorrow! I just previewed the cut for the film they featured at the 5Point Film Festival and it is outstanding!


Hang out with Steve Swenson and MC Fitz Cahall at 6pm before the showing, then join for a Q&A after the movie.


We're raising funds for the WCC and the Vantage Toilet - we've gone farther than any effort thus far. We'll have a short presentation Thursday night as well outlining the project.
