Response to Initiative to Carry Flag to Top of California 14'ers

 

Yreka climber Kevin Downing is no stranger to terrorism.
Downing is one of 20 climbers who placed the names of the World Trade Center victims and an American flag on the summits of all 14 of California's 14,000 foot or higher peaks.
Downing and his partner, Vic Kerttula, climbed and commemorated 9-11 on Mount Shasta.
Nevadan Mary Hathaway conceived the idea and sought out climbers to do the peaks. Approximately six weeks ago, teams fanned out all over the state to show their respect for those lost on September 11th.
