In October 2010, Chicks Girly Guide Dawn Glanc along with Patrick Ormond and Jeremiah Watt travelled to Montenegro, a small country in Southeastern Europe to climb. The name Montenegro literally translates to “black mountain” which is very descriptive of the country that is bordered by the Adriatic Sea to the southwest, but has only a very narrow coastal plain (only one to four miles wide!) before hitting the various ranges, considered to be some of the most rugged terrain in Europe. Dawn, Pat & Jeremiah were the first American party to climb in Montenegro and were accompanied by a local team of eight climbers. The local climbers’ knowledge and experience helped the American team put up multiple first ascents. Dawn will be giving a slide show presentation that tells the story of this expedition between two cultures that was made successful through a genuine shared love of rock climbing.
Cool! So when & where might you be lucky enough to hear more about this? Here are the details:
