Andy Selters and I got together at the Mountain Rambler Brewery here in Bishop awhile back and Andy entertained me with Stories about Norman Clyde and his Eastern Sierra backcountry hiking and exploring adventures.
Introduction to the Outdoors
I went to college and, and like three days into college at Humboldt state, I went to a meeting of the outdoor club and they were going to do a winter ascent of Mount Shasta. I'd seen snow once in my life before, and I had done a lot of hiking in Southern California that year so they helped me go. I'd never experienced cold or snow or anything like that. And I came real close to the summit. I turned around right near the top, but basically I went back next year and did another winter ascent, this time it was successful and I was like, yeah, I was ready to do it.
