Travel Talk at NE Harbor Library
September 12 @ 5:30 pm
Peter Rogers will give a talk titled “Everest and the Seven Summits” on Sept. 12 at the Northeast Harbor Library.
Rogers first climbed at Outward Bound during high school, got quite serious about it in college, and pursued his passion as far afield as Nepal and the Arctic in his 20s. He then took a decades-long hiatus from the high peaks. Rogers returned to serious mountaineering in 2011, with the Seven Summits as his eventual goal, and this rediscovered commitment led him to Everest in 2015, where a massive earthquake and resulting avalanche ended the season for everyone on the mountain.
Rogers will describe his escape from above Everest’s Khumbu icefall, as well as his adventures on other climbs and summits he has experienced. Photographs from his various trips will support the talk.
