The M Climb
August 16 @ 7:30 am - 1:00 pm
It was 111 years ago this year that Colorado School of Mines students and faculty built a monument on Mount Zion, loading a supply train of burros and packing their way up.
Now it’s time for the next generation of Oredigger—the class of 2023—to make their own trek up the mountain, carrying 10-pound rocks from their hometowns to whitewash and add to the mountainside M.
The 2019 M Climb will be held the morning of Friday, Aug. 16, with faculty and staff joining first-year students in the traditional climb.
