Best Snow Climbs and Scrambles with Dave Cooper
October 7th, 2009 @ 7:00PM (Museum Reception @ 5:30)
Join us for a night with Dave Cooper discussing his popular guidebooks to the best Snow Climbs and Scrambles in Colorado! “Colorado Snow Climbs” is organized by season, and ranges from routes requiring little more than an ice ax and the requisite skills, to technical climbs involving sections of serious ice and mixed climbing. By including “classics” as well as a sampling of lesser-known high quality routes, plus detailed maps and route descriptions, Dave continues the tradition started in his best-selling “Colorado Scrambles”.
“Colorado Scrambles” includes more than 50 scrambling routes in the major mountain ranges of Colorado. Author Dave Cooper (“Colorado Snow Climbs”) climbed each of these high-quality routes, selecting them based on challenge, rock quality, location and interesting route finding.
Born in Yorkshire, England, Dave Cooper has spent the last 25 years exploring the Colorado Mountains and has climbed extensively in many of the world’s great ranges, including the Andes, Himalayas, Canadian Rockies and Alaska Range. Join Dave Cooper for a presentation about the best Snow Climbs and Scrambles in Colorado! Copies of Colorado Snow Climbs and Colorado Scrambles will be available for sale and Dave Cooper will be on hand to sign copies upon request.
