There are a few of the club who have been active with the San Gorgonio
Wilderness Association (SGWA) and if you have you will know the answer to
this question: Who was the first woman to thru-hike the PCT?
The answer is: Teddi Boston in 1976 (Google her name) and she is still
active with the SGWA as the Volunteer Coordinator. If you go to the
volunteer training this year you will meet her as she runs around organizing
Just thought you should know.

Reiner Stenzel PCT Talk
The Caltech Alpine club is thrilled to host Caltech alumnus Reiner Stenzel.
He will be talking about thru-hiking the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) as part
of his retirement adventure scheme.
Reiner will describe what thru-hiking involves, why one would do it, who is
doing it, and what it has in common with mountaineering. Thru hikers have
their own culture and habits, formed by hiking for many months over
distances of a hundred marathons, climbing elevations of a dozen Mt
Everests, in climates of desert heat to freezing mountain storms. It can
have a profound experience on one's life.
