Recent climbs made possible in part by the AAC Grant Program:

• Colin Haley received a Mountain Fellowship for his successful link-up of the much-coveted Torre Traverse.

• Dave Turner received a Lyman Spitzer Cutting Edge Award for his solo new route on Cerro Escudo.

• Jonny Copp and Micah Dash received a Spitzer Award for their successful first ascent of the Shafat Fortress in the Zanskar Mountains in India.

The deadline for the 2008 grants is coming up fast!

March 1 is the deadline for many of the AAC’s grant programs, including the Lyman Spitzer Cutting-Edge Award, the McNeill-Nott Award, AAC Research Grants, and the Scott Fischer Memorial Conservation Grant. The deadline for the Zack Martin Breaking Barriers Grant is March 15. The next deadline for AAC Mountain Fellowships is April 1. Last year the AAC gave out more than $38,000 in climbing and research grants. Don’t miss your chance: Get your application in soon, and please spread the word to other potential applicants.
