From one rec department to another

Dear Editor:

Basalt Recreation would like to thank the staff at Aspen Recreation Center, Aspen Recreation Department, and Aspen Expeditions for a splendid week of climbing with our Rock Climbing Adventure Series.

Thank you to Carolann Twohig, Frank Arnella and Erin Hutchins at the ARC for showing our climbers proper techniques and safety on the tower. Thank you to Jeremy Graham from Aspen Rec and Karen Sahn of Aspen Expeditions for teaching us the technique of bouldering, belaying and showing us the real deal of rock climbing finesse on Independence Pass. And a very special thank you to Susan Arnella from Aspen Rec Department for helping set up all the activities for us.

We all had a blast!

Dorothy Howard
