Twin summits - highs and lows of a bifurcated climbing career - Dr Penny Brothers

Come join Penny as she shares with us some of her impressive climbing history along with some insights into where the alpine club is heading as a result of the recent strategic planning process.

Dr Penny Brothers (NZAC President) was born and grew up in Auckland, New Zealand.  Penny has combined an academic career in chemistry at the University of Auckland with a keen interest in the mountains around the world. Climbs in Yosemite include the West Face Of El Capitan, the Direct North West Face of Half Dome, the West Face of Sentinel, and the Leaning Tower.   She was a member of the 1980 American and Indian women’s expedition to the Garhwal Himalaya and a member of the summit party of the first ascent of Bhrigupanth (6770 m).
