Explore Mt Everest – Online with the American Alpine Club




Ever wonder what treasures are hiding in the AAC archives? Well, wonder no more! Today we launch Explore, and our first-ever online exhibit: Everest 1963: The American Odyssey. Visit this new resource to see special photos, videos, and documents that tell one of the greatest stories in mountaineering history. Explore also features a supplemental Everest gallery with over 200 images from the 1963 expedition. Many of these photos have never been available to the public until now. Please have a look, and let us know what you think.

Four of the seven living members of the 1963 American Mount Everest Expedition are reuniting later this month at the AAC’s 2013 Annual Benefit Dinner in San Francisco. This event marks the first time in decades that Jim Whittaker, Tom Hornbein, Norman Dyhrenfurth, and David Dingman will be together on the same stage, recounting the stories that forever shaped the future of American climbing. Time is running out to buy tickets to this once-in-a-lifetime event—registration closes on February 15. We hope you will join us for this extraordinary evening.
