Watch Alan Arnette's Summiting Manaslu Presentation Live On YouTube Tonight!

Last fall, Alan Arnette added another 8000 meter peak to his already impressive resumé when he successfully reached the summit of Manaslu. At 8156 m (26,759 ft) in height, it is the eighth highest mountain in the world and a challenging climb, although not in the same league as some of the other big Himalayan peaks.

Since his return from the climb last October, Alan has been giving a series of talks about the expedition, sharing his insights about climbing in the Himalaya in general and about Manaslu specifically. But unless you live in Colorado, chance are you haven't gotten a chance to see Alan's presentation. That can change tonight, as the slide show is going to be broadcast live over the Internet starting at 6 PM local time, which 8 PM EST/7PM CST.

The event is being broadcast on the Rest of Everest YouTube channel, which you can access by clicking here. This will be a great opportunity to see Alan in action and learn more about climbing in the Himalaya. It should be a fun and interesting experience for sure.

Thanks Kraig for the shout out. In addition to me presenting my summit climb of Manaslu I will be followed by Boulder’s 16 year-old Matt Moniz who will present his plans to climb three 8000m mountains, Everest, Lhotse and Cho Oyu this spring including skiing one the world’s highest couloir on Lhotse.

The evening is a fund raiser for the Dzi Foundation which partners with under served communities in remote regions of the Himalaya to build sustainable locally-driven programs that improve quality of life through advancing education and health while reducing poverty.

Thanks for the info Alan! Seems like it is going to be a great evening. Can't wait to follow along. And Matt is a great young man. I have no doubt he'll be fun to listen to as well.
