Be Wild Stories Of Passion & Adventure: Libby Sauter says
The Mountaineers, Mountaineers Books, and adidas outdoor are pleased to present the 2016 BeWild Speaker Series, putting passion and adventure at center stage! This year, we're presenting adventurers who've achieved great things and overcome huge challenges through the outdoors. Come to any one of these talks - or all four - and we guarantee you'll leave inspired to seek adventure, connect with nature, and work to protect the wild places we cherish.

Join us June 2 for a presentation by Libby Sauter.The 30-year-old nurse splits her time between saving children's lives with international NGO Novick Cardiac Alliance in some of the world's most dangerous places and climbing hard on some of the world's most challenging rock faces. In her downtime she enjoys playing on a "highline" - a thin piece of rope strung high above the valley floor. In 2014 she set the female speed record on The Nose, El Capitan with Mayan Smith-Gobat. She's even completed two routes of El Capitan in a day - most spend up to a few nights on the face making the challenging ascent.

Learn more about this talk, and our entire BeWild Speaker Series, at www.mountaineers.org/bewild. Our other speakers are Sasha DiGuilian, Brendan Leonard, and Jess Roskelley & Ben Erdman.

Tickets are $10 for members, $12 for non-members. All of the shows begin at 7pm at our Seattle clubhouse, with doors opening at 6pm.
