The American Alpine Club (AAC) has awarded US$21,500 in Lyman Spitzer and Helly Hansen grants to expeditions to Greenland, Mongolia, the Himalayas, Baffin Island and Alaska. The grants are drawn from an endowment made possible by support from AAC members, including a generous bequest from Lyman Spitzer, and the support of corporate partners Helly Hansen and REI.

Twenty-seven climbers and explorers applied for support, to promote state-of-the-art, cutting-edge climbing with small, lightweight teams. The climbers will be attempting bold first ascents or difficult repeats of the most challenging routes in the world's great mountain ranges.
