Active in the DPS: 1963-2005 Active in SPS DPS
Gordon emerged as a leader in the 1960s and quickly exhibited remarkable skills in trip planning and execution. An engineer Gordon expertly converted information taken from maps and emerging peak guides into successful trips in both the Sierra and desert. Rather than repeating climbs he'd already made most of his trips were new experiences which demanded exceptional leadership skills. After finishing the SPS DPS and HPS lists Gordon shifted much of his emphasis to other high points in the Southwest and today possesses a heralded range of climbs in that region. He willingly imparts information gained from those independent explorations to today's leaders thereby continuing to contribute to the Angeles Chapter's outings program.-Jerry Keating Gordon was sponsored for Sierra Club Membership by the renowned photagrapher Ansel Adams.
