Correspondent, New York Times
Great Wall Hotel
Christopher Wren, New York TImes correspondent and an experienced technical mountaineer, climbed Mount Everest last spring as a member of the 1983 American Alpine Club's attempt of the West Ridge through Tibet, a climb made totally without oxygen support. HIs talk will be accompanied by slides and a demonstration of the climbing equipment used in the attempt.
The management of the recently opened Great Wall Hotel has graciously provided a venue for this talk in the Ballroom on the 2nd floor.
