BCMC Social Event



“And then there were two. Adventures on Aconcagua”


Presenters: Joe Blakeman, Michelle Campbell, Gabriel Keroack, Oleg Kouznetsov and Justyna Matracki.

"Join us as we share the stories and experiences of our ascent up Aconcagua. We all accepted this challenge with no guarantee of success and with it came incredible highs and lows, physical and psychological altitude illness, and ridiculously heavy packs. We set out as a team of five and our journeys came to an end at different altitudes with two of us reaching the summit in a lightheaded daze.  Through our suffering came lessons learned and an undeniable urge to return for another attempt."

Looking forward to seeing you all.

Location: The Anza Club, #3, West 8th Ave., Vancouver | 19+ | Doors Open: 7:00 PM, Event Starts: 7.30 PM

This journey beg...
