Patagonia Film Screening (& FUNDRAISER): ROTPUNKT (6:30-9PM)
Patagonia is releasing their latest climbing film called ROTPUNKT featuring their ambassador, Alex Megos. ROTPUNKT follows Megos, a young German climbing phenom, as he tries to repeat and establish the hardest single-pitch rock climbs in the world. The film will explore the history of Frankenjura free climbing that underpins Alex’s climbing and philosophy, reveal the heavy burden of expectation he puts on himself to become the best climber in the world and examine what it takes to push the boundaries of human possibility. Film run time will be 30-40 minutes.
As of now, Alex is unable to tour with the film because he’s trying to qualify for the Olympics. So, we have his mentor/friend/climbing ambassador Sonnie Trotter doing a few events and the filmmaker Ken Etzel will also be doing events! They will introduce film + be available for Q&A after the film.
Registration coming soon.
Film Screening: Adapative (7-9pm)
Jim Ewing is a veteran rock climber and senior rope engineer at Sterling Rope, a prominent rock climbing rope company. On Christmas Day in 2014, Jim fell over 50 feet to the ground in a climbing accident, a near-death experience that led to the subsequent below-the-knee amputation of his left leg. Before walking on a prosthetic, Jim was already climbing again, and before long, he began dreaming about his bucket list...In 2018, Jim invited a professional climber missing her left hand, Maureen Beck, to accompany him in attempting the first all-adaptive ascent of the über classic and deeply remote Lotus Flower Tower (5.10+) in Canada's Cirque of the Unclimbables. The route is on the list of North America's 50 classic climbs and the 2,000 foot granite face is coveted by climbers everywhere. In "Adaptive", Jim and Maureen hope to demonstrate that "disabled" climbers are just differently––and equally––abled.
Free for members, guests welcome with a day pass.
