American Alpine Club Excellence in Climbing Awards



Buy Tickets Here ($20 gets you entry and TWO beers!)


Kick off the climbing season with a block party!

June 1, the community will gather in the home of the American Alpine Club for a festival celebrating all things climbing. Complete with carnival games, tours of the American Mountaineering Museum, an open air vendor village, artist market, food trucks and local beverages—the Excellence in Climbing Celebration has something for everyone! The highlight is inducting inspirational climbing heroes, Ken Yager and Laura Waterman, into the Hall of Mountaineering Excellence. And to cap it all off acclaimed author and climber Kelly Cordes will be presenting!

Tickets start at just $20.

Proceeds benefit the AAC Library and Mountaineering Museum.
