Mountaineer Readings


Two famous climbers who made their marks in Wyoming’s Grand Tetons, will be reading from their works to raise money for the proposed North Cascades mountaineering interpretive center at Washington Pass.

The readings will begin at 7:30 p.m., Sept. 1, at Sun Mountain Lodge near Winthrop.

Paul Petzolt will present his just-finished book “Teton Tales.” Petzoldt, 86, began making mountaineering headlines in the 1930s before founding the National Outdoor Leadership School.

Pete Sinclair, Evergreen State College English professor and former Tetons climbing ranger, will read from his book, “We Aspired: The Last Innocent Americans.”
