The Manitou Springs Heritage Center and Museum and the Pikes Peak AdAmAn Club are proud to host, “The Women of the AdAmAn Club” presented by John Graham (Member No. 59).
On New Year’s Eve 1923, five Colorado Springs men, later known as the “The Frozen Five”, climbed Pikes Peak in the dead of winter on New Year’s Eve and launched fireworks to mark the beginning of an annual Pikes Peak holiday tradition followed by thousands of spectators throughout the region each year.
Learn about the Women of the AdAmAn Club, including Sue Graham (Member No. 79), the first woman to join the Club. During her life, Sue has scaled nineteen Colorado Fourteeners and served as unofficial spokesperson for the club as the first woman member of the club.
