On Sunday January 6 friends and admirers of desert climbing legend Huntley Ingalls will be gathering at Neptune Mountaineering in Boulder, CO to share thoughts and remembrances. Neptune Mountaineering is located at 633 South Broadway in Boulder. The event is open to the public and will commence at 6 PM and end at 8:30 PM with several speakers including a slide presentation by desert climbing historian Steve "Crusher" Bartlett.
Having spent considerable time roaming the Colorado Plateau while doing survey work, Huntley was the first to catch the vision of climbing the desert giants like the Titan and convince others like Layton Kor and George Hurley to attempt them. He was a man of diverse interests and an asset to the Boulder climbing community right up to the end of his rich and varied life.
I have posters from the Diamond Reflections- Remembering Layton Kor event from 2013 that features a beautiful Huntley Ingalls photo of Layton and Charlie Roskosz pioneering D-7 back in 1962 available signed by all of the speakers and unsigned. Huntley was one of the speakers as he was present in support of that effort.
More on that amazing event is available here.
See you there!

That solves the mystery of how I missed seeing you.
I recorded the proceedings and once I clean up the sound it should turn out okay.
Huntley's niece Tara showed up and she was blown away by all the love and respect in the room. Her resemblance to Huntley was striking. Very cool to meet her and hear about her feelings for her uncle after the gathering.
