Calling our Most Adventurous Betties! 

Do you crave the thin air and harsh winds at the summit of a peak, looking down from the top of the world? We have the events for you! 

This summer, your Denver chapter is putting together a rad 14er Series. We will start with class one 14er routes and gradually increase to class 2 and 3 14er routes, and finish the season with an overnight trip in Colorado with a (likely class 3) 14er summit.

This series is designed to get Betties acclimated to Colorado's own summits, as well as a training series for a Kilimanjaro Summit bid in October, 2017.

Attendance at at least one info session is a requirement to be eligible for the hikes.

Cost to attend info session is $20 and includes snacks and wine. 

Tonight's event will specifically cover how to pack appropriately for overnight alpine hikes. You will need to bring your pack with your gear for review if you are signed up for our overnight trip on August 5th! We will let you know if any additional gear needs to be rented or purchased before the overnight backpacking trip! If you are signed up for the ___Sneffles/ Holy Cross/Long peak trip, this event is REQUIRED. If you cannot attend, please reach out to Niki or Susanna to schedule time to review your gear.
