Memories From First Climb
Having grown up in the Springs, I was always fascinated with the AdAmAn club. When I learned how to apply as a guest my goal was to climb with the club just once to check it off my list. Of course, without a sponsor, I didn’t make the cut but was put on the alternate list and to my surprise was called on the 29th. It was a fabulous experience and I checked it off my list then the next year I got an application automatically so figured what the heck, applied again and the rest is history.
Memories From First Member Year
I didn’t make member until my eleventh climb so I got to observe many new members and it always seemed we would get strung out as we got closer the the summit and would finish in two or three waves, so I was very proud that I was able to bring all of us to the summit in one large group. I also chose to lead the club up the cog the first day rather than the traditional Barr Trail route.
