Among her many accomplishments, in 1993, Lynn made the first free ascent of The Nose of EL Capitan, Yosemite's most famous aid route. A year later, she topped that feat with the first one-day free ascent of The Nose, leading every one of The Nose's 33 pitches in 23 hours. Both feats will long stand among the world's great rock-climbing accomplishments. They have yet to be repeated by man or woman.

Join us for a fascinating evening as Lynn shares her experiences as a leader in the sport.

Gail, didn't we meet at the New Paltz Hostel last fall? Me a long-haired asian guy. I was with my friend Anita who was on her way to Boston.

In any case, have you seen the weather forcast for New Paltz for Sunday. 54 degrees! Hmmm... Gunks or bust!

Just got back from JTree a few weeks ago. Going to El Chorro, Spain for spring break.

What year did you graduate?

Around here, I've been to Chickies, Livezey, Stover. Haven't gotten to Birdsboro yet. Otherwise Pottruck is good for a couple times a week.

Cheers, Terry
