Mt. Everest featuring Tonya Riggs - $5 (for the John Bachar Fund)
Local climber, Boulder Group Colorado Mountain Club member, and Director of Business Development for Trango and Stonewear Designs, Tonya Riggs, will share her most recent account of climbing Mt. Everest. Tonya has only been climbing mountains since the year 2000. Her travels have taken beyond the Himals to the Alps, the Andes and to Africa. She will share everything from the trials and tribulations of preparing for a climb of this magnitude, of climbing with an international team of people and of the angst associated with being on the mountain in the second deadliest season since the 1996 tragedy. She will also share the joys of seeing the magnificent vistas of the Himalayas, meeting new friends, pushing your body to the ultimate max and coming out of it all alive. A $5 donation will be requested at the door with all proceeds going to the John Bachar Fund. Shows starts at 8:00.
