Abstract Lamont Heaps (b. 1945) was born in Salt Lake City. He graduated from Skyline High School in 1963 as part of Skyline's first graduating class. Lamont talks about his early outdoor experiences in the Canyon Rim area of Salt Lake. He spent a lot of time exploring caves across the Wasatch Front. After spending time in the National Guard, Lamont got involved with Search and Rescue while working at a grocery chain called Warshaw's. He describes his involvement with a group that eventually became Alpine Rescue, which started setting standards for rock climbing and rescue in Utah. Lamont talks about techniques and equipment used in rescues he was a part of. The organization slowly disbanded as the members graduated from college and went into their professions.Outdoor Recreation Oral History Project. Interviewer: Matt Driscoll
