Greetings fellow highpoints lovers !
The Highpointers Foundation is sponsoring a new silent auction (our 8th book!). We have Royal Robbins two - volume autobiography, personalized to the HP Club.
These books were published in 2010, and I met Royal at a Brad Washburn American Mountaineering Museum function in Golden CO this Spring, and he signed them for us.
If you aren't aware, he was the first climber to "go big" on the walls of Yosemite, around 1960. He is an iconic American climber. Many of us read his books (Basic and Intermediate Rockcraft) back in the '70's. He never published again until last year.
The auction benefits the Foundation. All proceeds are used to improve private and public state highpoints. All donations are tax deductible beyond the ordinary value of the books (~$40).
Prior auctions have raised well over $2,000 for the Foundation.
Go to the Foundation website to make a bid:
Keep Klimbin' !!!!
