Dylan Johnson will be giving a slideshow about his first ascent in China, and some other very impressive first ascents. Their route on the southwest ridge of Siguniang (6250 metres) involved 9200 feet/72 pitches of technical climbing, including free climbing up to 5.11. Dylan and his partner Chad Kellogg. spent 10 days on the razor-edge ridge, including an unplanned open bivy at 20,000 feet.  (Dylan Johnson is a noted American alpinist who is a 2 (or more ?)- time winner of American Alpine Club's prestigious Mug Stumps award.)  Email me if you would like me to save youa spot in the van (or if you could drive if needed)
