Ever dream of scaling the world’s tallest mountain? If not, have you ever wondered what motivates the men and women who risk their lives to do so? Dr. John Klein, Tucson orthopedic surgeon, will share his epic 2017 adventure of scaling Mt. Everest at the Kino Lecture Series opening Monday, October 29, 2018. In addition to Everest, Dr. Klein has scaled the highest peaks on five other continents, leaving only North America’s Denali to conquer. Sharing photographs and samples of climbing gear, he will relate his Everest experience which included sights of death and often defeat.
All Kino Lectures are held at 7:00 p.m. at Quail Creek’s Madera Clubhouse.
