Aaron has just returned from a National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) Summer Semester in Alaska,where he acquired great mountaineering experience while travelling on the Nelchina and Science glaciers. Aaron looks forward to honing his climbing skills and helping other students in the DC area fall in love with climbing and the outdoors.

Katherine Keimig, from North Kingstown, Rhode Island, was introduced to sport climbing in 2009 and became an avid climber after a sports injury in 2013. Growing up in Southern New England has its challenges when it comes to alpine climbing but has allowed her to grow up hiking and trekking in the White Mountains. Katherine originally joined the AAC for its multitude of benefits but has enjoyed becoming involved with the AAC community and has become the Sections unofficial photographer. She looks forward to share her passion of the outdoors and help students in the area come to love and learn about climbing.
