The Colorado Mountain Club is hosting a free lecture tonight at the Mountaineering Center:  Leonard and Smith will tell stories and share beta from some of their favorite climbs from their new CMC Press guidebook Classic Front Range Trad Climbs: Multi-Pitch Routes 5.4–5.8, detailing 40 multipitch routes in Lumpy Ridge, Boulder Canyon, the Flatirons, Eldorado Canyon, Elevenmile Canyon, Garden of the Gods, and other areas. They have thus far survived climbing with each other for seven years, and when they have not succeeded in summiting, they have still succeeded in having fun. They think every climber could use a little adventure and are excited to share their new book. Autographed copies of Classic Front Range Trad Climbs will be available at the CMC member discounted price. Free More information.

City Council has a busy weekend lined up.  The five candidates for the City Manager’s job are coming to town to be interviewed.  Tomorrow (Friday) from 4-6, there will be a reception at the community center, so that members of the public have the opportunity to meet the candidates and (provide comments about them to council).  After that, Council will take the candidates to dinner at the Table Mountain Inn.  They will reconvene on Saturday morning at City Hall, to interview the candidates and then discuss them.  Saturday’s meeting will be an executive session, and not open to the public.
