January 13, 2009 - Tackling 'The Grand' Teton by Jean Quattrocchi and Phil Seward. ADK members Jean and Phil decided to try something a bit different. Getting to the top of "The Grand" includes some rock climbing in addition to hiking. Neither is a rock climber. Learn how they prepared with Rock and River in the Adirondacks and Exum Mountain Guides in Wyoming. Even if you have no desire to tackle this one, come see their slides of this spectacular
peak and its environs.
Refreshments will be served.
