Mountaineering Fest set for 15th year in Keene Valley

On Saturday, Jan. 15, the evening will start with the annual Keene Valley Fire Department and the Lake Placid Pub and Brewery will be hosting an all-you-can-eat spaghetti dinner at the nearby fire hall starting at 5:30 p.m.

"That is the big night," McClelland said. "The dinner is really fun and the fire department does a really great job with it. You will see 200-300 people come on that night. Even if they are not staying for the presentation, they come to support the fire department."

Renowned Exum guide and Teton legend Mark Newcomb will be the featured presenter on Jan. 15, preceded by raffles and a trailer for Jeff Lowe's new film. The event will be at the school and begin at 7:30 p.m.

Sunday's Vermont climber Matt McCormick will present slides and video at 7:30 p.m. at the Keene Valley Fire Hall.
