Meet Your Chapter Chair:
David Thoenen's a long time AAC volunteer. He served nine years as Chair of the Southern Appalachian Section. He retired from section leadership to take on a pioneering role as the Chapter Chair for the Triangle Chapter serving our members in eastern North Carolina.
David's climbing focus is the rock and occasional ice of the southern Appalachians. However, other climbing pursuits regularly take him to the ice of North Conway and Ouray and the alpine challenges of the Tetons and Cascades.
David has organized and led AAC delegations to climb in the Caucasus Range and the peaks of Iran.
