Climber Shares Story of Mt. Everest Expedition at REI in Biltmore Park

ASHEVILLE, NC – Mountain climber Ron Sanga will share a slideshow on his 2008 Mount Everest expedition March 21 and March 22 at REI Asheville in Biltmore Park.

The presentations will be held at 3 p.m. March 21 and at 4 p.m. March 22.

Sanga, retired in 1999 after 18 years of owning a company that climbed high rise buildings and repaired them due to storms or construction defects.

Hanging from a quarter inch cable 200 feet off the deck every day led to his travels around the U.S. in an RV to find the perfect rock to climb after retirement. Two years later Sanga decided to try mountaineering, and since then has created an extensive mountaineering resume.

Registration for this free presentation is requested. Call 687-0918 to register.
