Among Giants- Climbing and Trekking in the Himalaya 

- by John Gill

Tales of climbing and trekking in the Himalaya. John shares a first-hand account of traveling in Nepal, trekking through the highest mountains in the world and how he broke into high altitude mountaineering. He covers Nepal's vibrant and exciting culture, popular destinations, attainable peaks above 6,000m, and his first steps towards climbing an 8,000m giant.

The Social Presentation will take place at the Vancouver ANZA Club main floor (corner of 8th Ave and Ontario) on Tuesday, April 11th. The entrance door will open shortly before 7pm and the BCMC Social Presentation is scheduled to begin at 7:30 PM.  Please note: you must be 19+ years old to attend and may be asked to sign-in at the door to ensure we don't exceed 135 people in the hall. Feel free to grab a drink at the Bar before the social starts.
