Autry Center-Granite Frontiers

Today we presented at the Autry Center Museum in Los Angeles. They currently have an exhibit called "Granite Frontiers a century of Yosemite Climbing". We held an Awareness Workshop on Leave No Trace and Responsible Rock Climbing. We touched on the many impacts you can have while climbing and how to minimize them with gear and types of climbing. We had some general public attendees and some climbing site managers within the Boy Scouts of America. We played a couple of games, and talked about how to minimize your impacts while trad or sport climbing. We were able to check out the exhibit inside, and saw some amazing displays. Some of them were pictures of John Muir in his climbing days, Royal Robbins & Warren Harding establishing some of the first ascents in Yosemite, and Lynn Hill free climbing the Nose. The exhibit is truly amazing, and something to check out if you are in the LA area. Thank You Lisa Woon for having us, it was a pleasure to meet you and be guests at the museum.

Happy Trails from the E-Tour,

Alexis & Topher
