A Big Thanks!

By November 25, 2012

The OAC would like to extend its gratitude to Steve Swenson, who donated the honorarium he recently received from the ACC to support the OAC. Steve was in Toronto recently for the Toronto Section of the Alpine Club of Canada’s AGM. As inspiring as his Saser Kangri II climb was (for which Mark Richey, Freddie Wilkinson and he won the coveted 2012 Piolet D’Or), the real highlight of the evening was hearing Steve advocate for the value of beloved partners that you put before yourself and trust with your life – both in life and in climbing. Well done!
