Abstract George (b. 1946) was born in New York and attended school in Massachusetts before the family moved to Colorado, where he became interested in climbing. He studied engineering at the University of Utah and climbed in the Wasatch with Joel Brown and Jock Gliddon. He recalls climbs in the Tetons and Wind Rivers. Later climbs took him to Canada, the Alps, the Hindu Kush in Afghanistan, and Nepal. Topics discussed include the Ute Alpine Club, Das Berghaus, the Wasatch Mountain Club, the Alpenbock Club, competition between climbers, equipment and gear, snow and ice climbing, caving, search and rescue, development in the Wasatch Canyons, and guidebooks.
