I plan to be there but am not the official organizer per se. Just wanted to alert folks about the legendary mountain man - Ed Viesturs. He's climbed all 8000 meter peaks without supplement oxygen - only the 6th person to do this and the 1st American to do so. Hope to see you there!

Historic LoDo: Veteran world-class climber and bestselling author Ed Viesturs—the only American to have climbed all fourteen of the world’s 8,000-meter peaks and the sixth person to do so without supplemental oxygen—will discuss and sign his new book The Mountain: My Time on Everest ($27.00 Touchstone). The world’s most famous mountain, Everest remains for serious high-altitude climbers the ultimate goal. Viesturs has gone on eleven expeditions to Everest, reaching the summit seven times. He’s spent more than two years of his life on the mountain, and no climber today is better poised to chronicle Everest’s various ascents—both personal and historic.
