A Tale of Two Climbs Wednesday 7pm

Note: There was an error in today’s Conway Daily Sun. This talk replaces the one on the Galapagos. This will be just as good so please come.

Please join the Friends of the Jackson Public Library for “A Tale of Two Climbs” by renowned local climber Henry Barber this Wednesday evening October 11 at 7 pm at the Jackson Public Library, located at 52 Main Street in Jackson, NH.

In a two month period Henry Barber made a rope-less solo ascent of a famed sea cliff rock climb in North Wales UK and the rope-less first ascent solo of 3,000 foot alpine route in Kyrgyzrstan, then in the USSR. Henry reflects on what it took to climb these two very different routes and how what he learned is missing from our world today. This is a talk meant for any audience that appreciates how everyday experiences relate to our changing world.

Henry Barber has been climbing for over 40 years. He is a native New Englander but has spent most of his climbing career traveling the globe. He pushed standards from 1971 through 1980 on rock primarily but also on ice and alpine climbs, climbing in over 30 countries worldwide.
