2016 Excellence In Climbing Awards Dinner says
Celebrate climbers who achieve both on and off the mountain, at the American Alpine Club’s 2016 Excellence in Climbing Awards Dinner!

Presented by adidas Outdoor

The event includes a cocktail reception, silent and live auctions, dinner, and a keynote by Libby Sauter. Or join us for the After Party with live music by 80’s cover band, The Goonies. There we'll give away a gear package that would make any outdoors person drool!

Five highly accomplished climbers from a variety of backgrounds will be inducted into the Hall of Mountaineering Excellence. Inductees come from all disciplines; mountaineering, rock, ice and mixed. Inductees have had a significant impact on climbing history, but have also made contributions of meaning in other areas relating to the mountains and their vibrant communities. The multi-dimensional inductees have made lasting contributions in the areas of culture, environmental responsibility, community, the arts and sciences.

2016 Awardees:
- Tom Frost
- Hugh Herr
- John Roskelley
- Libby Sauter
- Geoff Tabin

Proceeds from this event benefit the American Alpine Club Library and American Mountaineering Museum.
