Steve Swenson is the current president of the American Alpine Club and a member of
the Seattle Vertical World. He will discuss his forthcoming trip to an unclimbed 7,500
meter peak in the eastern Karakoram in India as well as climbing in Pakistan, China,
and Patagonia.
The Vertical World Climbing Team is one of the best in the nation:
2009 First Place National Youth Bouldering Champions
2008 First Place National Youth Bouldering Championships
2007 Second Place National Youth Sport Climbing Championships
2006 First Place National Youth Sport Climbing Championships
These dedicated climbers work hard every day to qualify for divisional and national
events, yet not all of them can afford to participate at these higher levels due to the
added costs. Last year, team members traveled to Colorado, Utah, and California to
compete at the National and Divisional levels. Team members represented the U.S.
Climbing Team at the World Championships in Sydney, Australia and Montreal,
Canada. You can help our youth climb and win with a gift to: Vertical World Climbing
Team Fund, PO Box 221008, Seattle, WA 98122 or by contacting CinniF@msn.com.

On behalf of the Vertical World Climbing Team, I would like to thank Steve Swenson, and all the people that came out to the event!

The money raised will help team members that otherwise could not afford it to travel to National & International climbing competitions.
