6C Wednesday, March 5, 2014 Bulletin, Kecord, Progressive, Reporter I i James Wilson Sports Editor sports@plumasnews.com There was a small window of decent weather, maybe only three or four days. If Quincy outdoor recreation enthusiasts Brett Marty and Saylor Flett were going to summit Alaska's Mount Fairweather, they needed to leave immediately. The pair took offfrom the glacier they called their home , for the previous two weeks while waiting for a break in the weather. In two days, they hoped to climb and mountaineer their way up 10,000 feet through the treacherous terrain to the summit. After they reached the top, they would need to hightail it down the mountain and back to the glacier where they would call a pilot On their satellite phone and hope he could make it before the Weather turned and stranded them on the roadless, isolated glacier. This was the scenario two Quincy locals found themselves in last spring. A small grant from the American Alpine Club allowed Marty and Flett the opportunity to join their friends Bill Pilling and Bob Rugo on an expedition of a lifetime up the tallest mountain of the Coast Range in Alaska. "Despite the name (Fairweather), it's quite the weatherous range," recalled Marty. "We waited out the weather for two weeks, then had this small Window and decided to take it." On Thursday, Feb. 6, the four mountaineers will recount their adventure in full detail through a multimedia presentation at the Town Hall Theater in Quincy. The two will give commentary while going through their photos and videos presented on the big screen. Tickets to the presentation cost $4 at the door. Money raised will benefit Feather River College's Outdoor Recreational Leadership program. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and the presentation will start at 7 p.m. Saylor Flett, Bill Pilling and Bob Rugo trudge their way through the treacherous Alaskan terrain last spring. The mountaineers, along with accompanying mountaineer Brett Marty, will detail their account at a multimedia presentation at the Town Hall Theater this Thursday at 7 p.m. Photos, video and good old fashion story telling will encompass their adventure through some of the world's toughest terrain.
