Breaking the Female Ascent Record on Longs Peak: A Presentation by Lisa Foster
8/7/2016, 7:00PM to 8:00PM
Join accomplished mountaineer Lisa Foster as she gives a brief history of women on Longs Peak, including her own record-breaking ascents that established her as the first female to climb Longs Peak in every month of the year, and to become the woman with the greatest number of lifetime summits of this iconic 14, 259-foot mountain nearly 90 times by 17 different routes.
Mountaineering is Foster's passion and her career; in 2004 she released the highly acclaimed hiking book, "Rocky Mountain National Park: The Complete Hiking Guide," a resource so popular and sought-after that it is challenging to keep in print to meet demand. She has hiked to every named destination in Rocky Mountain National Park—a feat no other person, past or present, has been able to claim. Foster is also an accomplished rock and ice climber and has climbed all over the world. She has successfully summited the highest peaks in both North and South America and continues to hike and climb on her home turf enjoying Rocky Mountain National Park with her family and friends. Cost is $2 for Musuem-mebers and youth under 18-years-old, $5 for non-members. Space is limited.
