Tom Hornbein–Mountaineering Excellence

The Denver Post ran a great story today on mountaineer Tom Hornbein, who lives in Estes and though 80 years old, can still be seen scrambling around Lumpy Ridge.

Hornbein will be inducted into the Hall of Mountaineering Excellence during the gala this Saturday at the American Alpine Club’s Mountaineering Museum this weekend in Golden.

But any other day, keep an eye out for Hornbein on the crags around Estes.
