Free Mt. McKinley/Denali Climbing Presentation at REI! by Jeff Babcock / June 21st
Should I Not Return by Jeff Babcock
Jeff Babcock was a member of the rescue team that searched for seven missing climbers from the Joseph Wilcox Expedition on the upper slopes of Mt McKinley in the summer of 1967. Three books have been written about North American mountaineering's worst climbing disaster: Howard Snyder's The Hall of The Mountain King (1973), Joe Wilcox's White Winds (1981), and James M. Tabor's Forever On The Mountain (2007).
Jeff's book, SHOULD I NOT RETURN is the fourth book written about the tragedy, and the first written by a member of the team that found three of the bodies, all of whom still remain entombed in Denali's glaciers, as Tabor puts it 'Forever On The Mountain.'
Come and see Jeff's presentation--a true-to-life 'cliff-hanger;' a story of survival, danger, and heroism on the icy slopes of Alaska's Denali.
