50 Year Anniversary of the Salathe Wall

Join us for a reunion celebrating the 50th anniversary of the first ascent of the Salathe Wall of El Capitan. Come meet some of the climbing pioneers from the Golden Era of Yosemite . This is a Legends of Stone event sponsored by YCA.

Tom Frost and Royal Robbins will be showing slides from their historic first ascent of El Capitan's second route done in 1961 with the late Chuck Pratt. The gathering is on Saturday October 22, 2011 in the East Auditorium, Yosemite Valley. Doors will open at 6:00pm and the show will start at 6:30pm. Open to the public. There is no admission, but donations are welcome to help support Yosemite Climbing Association, a non-profit organization. Hope to see you there.

We will have t-shirts available that were made by Joe McKeown. Here is the front.
