Founded in 1902, the American Alpine Club (AAC) envisions a united community of competent climbers and healthy climbing landscapes. For more than a century, the AAC has built relationships with conservation-minded organizations and government agencies, funded and documented some of the world’s most significant climbs—including historic expeditions to K2 (1938, ‘39 and ‘53), the first ascent of Hidden Peak (‘58), the first American summit of Mount Everest (‘63), and Antarctica’s Mount Vinson (‘66)—and connected climbers from a variety of backgrounds. For over 100 years, climbers have come together and found their place at the AAC. Today, the AAC has before it the opportunity to push the needle and reimagine what community means among climbers. Banding together as a collective of patient, collaborative, problem-solving climbers, we’re up for the challenge.Something looks off?
