As our community grieved the loss of Brad Parker, two of his climbing partners hiked into the Sierra backcountry on a mission to take their fallen friend on the climb of his dreams. Along the journey they discovered the healing power of climbing for a greater purpose. Join us for an enlightening evening as Jerry Dodrill and Rob McKay re-trace their climb of the High Sierra’s Evolution Traverse and highlight the strengthening of a community.
