IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ!
Highpointing can be a dangerous and strenuous activity. Some highpoints are major mountains which require mountaineering skills, proper equipment, experience with route finding and weather, knowledge of emergency procedures, and a respect for the outdoor world. This pursuit requires extensive road travel. Be prepared. Plan ahead. Research each visit. Do not attempt any peak in adverse conditions or beyond your capability.
Every experienced member has a list of peaks on which they have turned around. This is an accepted and respected aspect of the sport. The highpoint will always be there for another day!
Nevada 2021 Convention Cancelled
Because of continuing uncertainty about the Covid-19 pandemic, the Highpointers Club Board of Directors has approved the recommendation by the Convention Committee to cancel the 2021 Konvention in Nevada (hotel/event location in Bishop, CA). We will resume with the 2022 Konvention in Pennsylvania. Please stay tuned (and read your “Apex to Zenith”) for more information about PA-22 as the Konvention hosts complete their plans for next year. – Alan Ritter, HP Club President

Convention – NV 2020 – postponed to 2021
A message from Alan Ritter, President, regarding the Highpointers Konvention 2020
Due to the uncertainties surrounding the ongoing Corona virus pandemic (aka Covid-19) and in the interest of the health and safety of all of our members, the Board of Directors after discussion with, and concurrence from, the NV’21 Konvention organizers, voted (May 1, 2020) to defer the 2020 Nevada Convention until the summer of 2021 and further to move the 2021 Pennsylvania Convention to the summer of 2022. This was not an easy decision but was the most appropriate way of dealing with the situation. Watch the newsletter and web site for further information about the rescheduled dates for NV’21 and PA’22. In the meantime, stay safe, stay healthy and (whenever you can), Keep Klimbin’!
