Ryan is going to give a slideshow on our 2008 Arrigetch expedition! This will occur at 6:30 PM on March 10th at the BP Energy Center in Anchorage, a great venue. Here is Harry Hunt's blurb about the show:
"Ryan Hokanson and Sam Johnson spent two weeks in the Arrigetch Peaks during August 2008. After warming up on the W. Maiden, they turned their sights to the unclimbed east ridge of Caliban, the highest peak in the Arrigetch. Their route involved 16 pitches and 4 rappels. They were forced to engineer their way around 2 of the towers and climbed up and over the other two. A great route, with amazing granite, that they named Pillar Arete 5.10b, grade V, 16 pitches and 4 rappels on route." -Check it out!
