The American Alpine Club (AAC) is 20,000 member strong and I am so proud to be one of the 20 featured members! I have been a member of the AAC for over four years now.  AAC has helped me score some of the best gear deals and gym discounts. AAC has allowed me to connect with other climbers when I have planned a climbing trip to other parts of the country. Though AAC and AAC: San Diego Chapter, I have made many friends and learned and shared a lot about all forms of climbing. The American Alpine Journal (AAJ) regularly informs me about some of the most daring ascents around the world and the Accidents in North American Climbing books reminds me what not to do in the mountains. The AAC also provides a fantastic rescue insurance. This is something that everyone who ventures in the outdoor should have!
