It pales in comparison to ascending Pikes Peak in the dead of winter, we know. But in honor of the AdAmAn Club’s 90th anniversary, the Indy's forging ahead with a narrated slideshow. I had a chance to talk with AdAmAn members about the special tradition and the challenges they face when making the unforgiving climb.
Donald Sanborn, the current President of the AdAmAn Club, has climbed most of the 14ers here in Colorado, and is on the board of directors for Barr Camp and the Pikes Peak Hill Climb.Wally Wineinger, a retired Colonel, is the newest AdAmAn member, though he's been climbing with the club since 2003.
Are you an AdAmAn fan? Wish them a happy 90th anniversary in the comments section!
