Join our club historian, Lindsay Elms to view a classic historical event in the history of Canadian mountaineering.
Filmed by Hamilton Mack Laing (National Museum of Canada) and Allan Carpe (American Alpine Club), this joint Canadian Alpine Club/American Alpine Club expedition tackled Mt. Logan, the highest peak in Canada at 19,551 ft/5959 m. The group walked in 110 miles to the icefields with 10 packhorses and 8700 lbs of provisions, then travelled another 100 miles to the top, all the while enduring an exceptionally cold winter with a large snowfall, wearing the heavy woollen and canvas clothing of the day. Can you imagine the toughness of these men?!! Well come and see for yourselves.
This film has been lent to Lindsay by the Mack Laing Heritage Society. Donations will be gratefully accepted from any attendees to benefit the Society, and help with Mack Laing’s desire to see his house renovated as a Natural History Museum.
As always friends and family are welcome!
