3) Ian Welsted
Following our Short AGM will be our presentation by Ian.
Ian is a guide and active climber living on the warm side of the Rockies, in Golden. From here he is happy to climb in the height of the Rockies, while getting to live in BC. Recently he is also spending time more and more on the coast, discovering the wonders of solid rock and warm winters.
His calling card is having received the Piolets D’Or (billed as the Oscars of alpine climbing) from a jury of his peers, one of two Canadians so recognized for a first ascent of K6 West in Pakistan.
From early years ski-bumming in Chamonix, studying economics and philosophy at McGill, and planting 3 or 4 million trees, he now mixes longer exotic trips to Asia with winters spent ice and alpine guiding. A past jury member at the Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival, he also appreciates long mornings with cappuccinos and novels, and evenings in discussion and reminiscence. For Ian guiding provides a means to share his love of the mountains and his appreciation of friendship and adventure, so much more than just the summits achieved.
Ian will be presenting to us on his attempt to climb the west ridge of K2, alpine style with his climbing partner Graham Zimmerman, as well as highlight his Asian trips, ice and mixed climbing in the Rockies, and hopefully news from a planned big first ascent in Waddington this summer, though promising before sending is said to jinx it.
