New location set Wednesday for Aspen climber Beidleman’s presentation
December 31, 2018
The Aspen Center for Environmental Studies has changed the location of Aspen resident Neal Beidleman's presentation Wednesday on climbing big peaks of the Himalaya.
In anticipation of a large crowd, the presentation will be at Paepcke Auditorium at 7 p.m. rather than at ACES cozy headquarters at Hallam Lake, ACES staff announced Monday.
Beidleman's presentation is part of the popular Potbelly Perspectives speaker series. The event kicks off a year of celebrations oriented around ACES' 50th anniversary.
Beidleman's presentation is titled "Making the Most of a Himalayan Climbing Season: Everest and Cho Oyu."
Beidleman was a member of a party that climbed Mount Everest, the world's highest peak, and Cho Oyu, the sixth-highest peak, in a 23-day push last spring. They climbed the peaks from the Tibet side, where there are roads to the base camps.
"Neal will contrast this past year's adventures against his previous summits of Everest from Nepal," said a description of the presentation from ACES. "Neal has climbed and photographed in the Himalaya over a 26-year span, capturing many iconic images and enjoys the art of storytelling."
