Peaks, walls and dreams
Thursday, March 15, Sacramento Pipeworks Climbing & Fitness, 7 p.m., no cover
Alex Honnold was already a renowned rock climber before he made history last year by climbing Yosemite’s El Capitan with no safety gear. And if you’re wondering where he got that spirit for adventure, meet his mom—Dierdre Wolownick. An accomplished climber herself, she’s also a runner, writer and retired professor who has also tackled some impressive peaks. She’ll share her stories of thrill chasing, and introducing her son to climbing, this week at Pipeworks. 116 N. 16th Street.
