On February 20th, 2021, the American Alpine Club hosted it's Annual Benefit Gala. With over 25,000 members and growing, the AAC supports fellow members as well as the climbing community, with programs that are relevant and vital for climbers of all ages and disciplines.
This event honored and celebrated the spirit of endurance as well as presented the 2021 Climbing Awards. Attendees tuned in virtually to watch the AAC recognize outstanding achievements in conservation, climbing and service to the climbing community.
Along with the Gala, the AAC held an auction to support their work protecting wild places, educating climbers, and building community. Prize packages included climbing gear, unique art, apparel, signed collectibles, dream trips and more!
Minus33 donated two base layer sets to the auction - one Men's and one Women's to the auction, that included a Midweight top, Ridge Cuff Beanie, and a pair of Mountain Heritage Socks.
