Bellingham resident, climber and author David Mauro will give a talk entitled “The ‘Why’ of Mountain Climbing,” at Western Washington University at 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 6, in Special Collections (Wilson Library 6th floor). The event is free and open to the public.
The motivations of mountaineers may be a mystery to those who do not climb high mountains, and climbers themselves typically struggle to explain the forces that call these women and men into thin air. Author David Mauro will offer his own answers to this “why?” question through pictures, video, and readings from his recent release, The Altitude Journals, recounting the seven-year period during which he traveled to each continent, climbing its highest summit.
