Mark and Janelle Smiley Presentation: North America's 50 Classic Climbs

Matthew James Matera's picture

Mark and Janelle Smiley are pro mountaineers attempting to be the first team to climb all of North America's 50 Classic Climbs.

 
Mark and Janelle are professional mountaineers, skiers and filmmakers - and a simply inspiring couple. They've climbed 44 of the 50 Classics, so far and produced a documentary video series along the way. 
 
Mark is an IMFGA certified mountain guide and his film and photography work has been featured in Alpinist, Climbing, Rock & Ice and Outside. Janelle is the current (and 3x) U.S. Ski Mountaineering champion. More info on their 50 Classic Climbs project can be found here.
 
They've been kind enough to let the GSB Outdoor Club and the Stanford Alpine Club host them here on campus so we can see firsthand just how exciting our lives could be. Come hear them talk about their ambitious mission, their passion for the outdoors, and what it takes to live an adventure-filled life.
