The mountains have been a part of Tad’s life for almost as long as he can remember. At first he’d find himself running around the western Sierra barefoot with a fly rod, but gradually he steered his attention to the vertical and technical world of climbing and mountaineering as a vehicle to experience the wonders of the natural world. He likes pre-dawn starts, cracked cuticles, unplanned bivies, zinc stained smiles and summit sunsets. For most of the last decade he has been chasing adventure from the windswept Pampas of Patagonia to the lung-busting high country of the Himalaya. When not seeking out the road less traveled, he lives in Bishop and works as a Mountain Guide specializing in high-end alpine terrain and full-scale, remote expeditions.

Some of Tad’s climbing accomplishments include:
-40+ New routes in the Sierra Nevada

-Over 50 expeditions to the greater ranges such as the Alaska Range, the Andes, the Himalaya and the Karakoram.

Join Tad as he presents on new routes and exploration in the Range of Light. He is convinced that the Sierra Nevada is the best “Home Range” in the United States. Comprising the largest Granitic Batholith in North America, the Sierra holds a magnitude of quality alpine rock and a lifetime of adventure. Wether it be long knife edge ridges, knobs and chickenheads, or clean golden splitters the High Sierra has it all and so much more.

This evening is sponsored by June Lake Brewing. The Winter Adventure Speaker series will run every Thursday from January  20- March 3. Tickets are $15 dollars each and will include admission, drink-ticket, and a chance to win door-prizes from local businesses.
