Chattanooga, TN - Rock/Creek Outfitters and The North Face are proud to present Greg Child and his slideshow entitled, “K2, Everest: The Two Highest Summits” on Saturday, May 13th at 7 pm.  The event will take place at the 100 Tremont Street Rock/Creek Outfitters’ location.  Donations will be accepted at the door, and proceeds will benefit the local access fund.  Child will be signing posters and The North Face will be giving away 7 Summit Track Jackets.  This is an event that should not be missed!

During Greg Child’s 30 year climbing career, he has become a veteran of 5.13 routes, A5 big walls, and the highest peaks in the Himalaya, namely Everest and K2.  His slideshow will cover his experience during these notable feats.  As an accomplished big wall climber, Child is considered North America’s preeminent Himalayan mountaineer.  In the world of publishing, Child’s exploits are no less impressive.  He is universally considered one of the most literate mountaineering chroniclers.  Among others, his works include Over the Edge, Postcards from the Ledge, Mixed Emotions, and Thin Air: Encounters in the Himalaya.  In addition to his novels, Child has contributed to magazines such as Outside, National Geographic, and Climbing Magazine.
