The townhall starts at 6:30 p.m. tomorrow night at Draper City Hall, 1020 E. Pioneer. 

Renowned professional climber Mark Twight talked about his new book: REFUGE - Effort, Environment and Emotion. The book is an accumulation of images, words and ideas experienced on mountains and the long, emotionally difficult descent back into the valley towards ordinary life.
