Mountaineer and environmental advocate dies
Collier was an avid mountaineer who had climbed all 586 peaks in the southern Canadian Rockies and was the second person ever to climb all of Canada’s peaks over 11,000 feet asl. Collier was known in the Calgary region in particular for his advocacy of many environmental issues. His dedication to the well-being of the environment was as outstanding as his climbing career.
Rick was the founder of the Old Goats Climbing Club, a member organization of the AHA.
He will truly be missed.
