Details

Join the Climbing Smiths for a free online panel discussion as they introduce their father's book, "The Bark of the Cony: Not If, But How–A Philosophy of Life."



Bark of the Cony follows the tale of the 1960s local legends, the Climbing Smiths—a father and four sons who together climbed all the Colorado 14ers, finishing while the youngest, Tyle, was just eight years old.



In his memoir, George Nash Smith tells of key life experiences that led to his attitude of challenging himself and the development of his unique life philosophy, Not If, But How. Through mountain climbing he learned a love of nature and imparted his life philosophy to his four sons. In 1969 they finished climbing all 67 peaks over 14,000 feet in the contiguous 48 states while forging strong family bonds, learning important values, and setting records along the way.



Flint, Quade, Cody, and Tyle—the four remaining Climbing Smiths—will share excerpts from the book, tell stories, and show photos from climbing all of the 14ers in the 1960s.
