Description

On the Edge of Calling SOS!

A winter trip that went south!

Our guest presenter, Cara Frangipane, will tell all about a group trip to the Fowler-Hilliard Hut in Eagle County in December 2019. A real-life discussion of how 13 folks survived a trip that went south.

She will describe her preparations from organizing the group to the extensive planning of the details of the trip, and how a deviation from the plan in the first hour of the trip set the path for a grueling and dangerous trek to the hut.

Cara will discuss what they did to alleviate risks, overcome obstacles and the infamous “would not do that again." We will explore what went right, the many things that went wrong and how all survived.

This will be an hour discussion followed by an hour of questions and answers and sharing of experiences learned by others.
