Holland & Hart is pleased to announce that partner Evan Randall was recently selected to the Colorado Mountain Club (CMC) Board of Directors. CMC connects thousands of adventure-loving mountaineers and delivers conservation, education, and recreational opportunities. As a member of the Board, Evan will provide leadership and guidance to the organization and work with the CMC members to achieve the goals outlined in its Strategic Plan 2025.
CMC’s mission statement, written in 1912 and remains unchanged for over 100 years, strives to unite the resources of Colorado’s mountain lovers; share information about the Rocky Mountains on behalf of science, art, and recreation; stimulate public interest in our mountain area; encourage preservation; and render readily accessible the region’s alpine attractions.
Evan is proud to follow in the footsteps of Holland & Hart’s co-founder Stephen Hart, an avid mountain climber who made several notable ascents of Colorado’s “fourteeners,” as recorded in the CMC’s classic Fourteen Thousand Feet: A History of the Naming and Early Ascents of the High Colorado Peaks. Hart and a fellow mountaineer were credited with “rediscovering” Colorado’s Mount Oxford in 1925. Hart also made the first rock-climbing ascent of 11,940-foot Lone Eagle Peak on Labor Day 1929 with Carl Blaurock and William Ervin, who were the first to climb all of Colorado's known 14,000-foot peaks.
