Colonel Foster Summit Traverse: Exhilarating and Exhausting

Join ACC-VI and IMR member Barry Hansen on a superb Island mountaineering adventure.

On August 14, 2020, Barry Hansen and Rich Priebe set out to attempt the Mount Colonel Foster summit traverse. They both had a good dose of nervous energy leading up this this trip, knowing it would push their technical, mental, and physical abilities to the limit. But the Colonel’s presence on the list of Island Qualifiers and its sheer status as an island classic made it a must objective. The mountain did not disappoint as they traversed its summit in perfect weather. It wasn’t an excursion without stories though, and these will be shared along with photos providing a first-person perspective of this Island classic.

This will be a joint presentation with the Island Mountain Ramblers.
