  Himalayan Slide-Video Show: This Tuesday, 11 January, 7:30 pm by Everest and K2 Summiter Dan Mazur


Dan Mazur

Update: We heard the park might be closed due to flooding, so before driving or paddling over, perhaps you would want to check with the folks at Griffith Park at: 323-913-4688. Hope to see you there at 7:30 pm. Thanks!  As of this morning: The park is closed, but we should have no problems coming in. Enter the Los feliz (main entrance).

Hi Mountain Friends! We hope your new year is going well?

SummitClimb.com would like to invite you to an exciting Himalayan slide-video lecture.

Who: Daniel Mazur, climber of seven of the world's highest peaks, including Everest and K2

When: Tuesday, January 11th at 7:30 pm

Where: Park Ranger's Headquarters at Griffith Park, 4730 Crystal Springs

Drive, Los Angeles, CA, 90027

Host: Southern California Mountaineers Association

Please tell ALL of your friends! We need a good turnout. Thanks.

The presenter is Daniel Mazur, an active Himalayan mountaineer who provides a thrilling and fascinating narrative of beautiful videos and slides of Himalayan climbing, trekking and cultural exploration in Pakistan, Nepal, Tibet, and China, as well as an opportunity to meet (on film) the likes of Ed Viesturs, Rob Hall, Anatoli Boukreev, and Scott Fisher, whom Dan has been lucky enough to climb with over the years.

For more show and tell fun, Dan is bringing the 3 satellite phone systems and the two lightweight oxygen system they are using on Everest. If you are thinking of climbing and trekking in the Himalaya, you will enjoy seeing these.

Its a fundraiser slideshow for the Mount Everest Foundation for the Sustainable Development of Nepal and Tibet. They are raising money for building health clinics, schools and environmental projects for poor regions near to Mount Everest.

In addition, there will be a lively discussion, so please bring many questions, as Dan loves talking about his favorite subject: Mountains.

After the show, we plan to adjourn to a local fun spot to chat and have a few drinks, so be sure and get permission to stay out till 11:00pm.

See you there!

Special Thanks to Laurie Carr and all of the kind people at Southern California Mountaineers Association for hosting the occasion.

Best 2005 Wishes, Thank you very much, and Cheers for now. Yours Sincerely, from SummitClimb.com and Daniel Mazur 

Daniel is a 44-year old Himalayan explorer, building designer, and climbing and trekking equipment tester, having lived in England, Asia, and North America.  There are 14 peaks in the world higher than 8,000 metres and he has reached the summits of 7 of them:  Mt. Everest, K2, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu, Shishapangma, and Gasherbrum 1. Climbing Magazine named Daniel the "most successful American to ever launch an expedition".  As a surprisingly articulate but humble Himalayan explorer and scholar, Daniel has been active in climbing the highest peaks of the Himalaya for many years. Daniel's written, photographic, and cinematic works are featured in London Alpine Journal, American Alpine Journal, Ito-Yuki Journal of the Japanese Alpine Club, Himalayan Journal, High Magazine, Climbing Magazine, Climber Magazine, the London Independent Newspaper, the London Guardian, On the Edge Magazine, Outside Magazine, Rock and Ice Magazine, Vertical Magazine, NBC Television, The Discovery Channel, EverestNews.com Website, Quokka Sports Website, and the new Cho-Oyu dvd.

His personal link with the region and its peoples began in 1986 when he traveled and trekked throughout Tibet and Nepal with friends, then joined together with climbers he accidentally met in a second-hand equipment shop in Kathmandu, to ascend Mount Everest followed by 7 of the world's highest 8000 metre peaks, many, including K2, by lesser known, new, and "off-the-beaten-track" routes. Here is a recent quotation from Dan: "During more than 30 visits to our planet's highest mountains, I am still surprised by the stark conditions local people live in, by their crippling lack of health care, lack of education, and rapidly shrinking forests. That's why I recently became involved with the Everest Foundation." He has been leading and organizing successful and safe overland, trekking, and mountaineering expeditions for 18 years, to Tibet, Nepal, China, North and South America, Pakistan, India, and Tadjikistan, and India.
