DPL (Denver Public Library) – For a time, the AAC held its Rocky Mountain Regional Depository Collection at the Denver Public Library. A change in the Denver Library’s policy resulted in this collection of AAC books being relocated to the University of Colorado at Boulder in 1981 with some portion then returning to the Club’s Library.

This book is from the collection of the American Alpine Club Library. Proceeds from the sale of this book go to benefit the Library. To see all current offerings from the AAC Library, click here.
