Digitally remastered, this is the perfect primer for our weekend screenings of “The Dawn Wall” and “Free Solo.” Featuring gear raffles from Bozeman Ice Festival sponsors.

Jeff Shapiro found climbing at a young age in Washington’s North Cascades. Almost 30 years and many summits later Jeff will share his story about the partnerships and friendships that keep him coming back. The presentation will focus on two of Jeff’s first ascents in the greater ranges of the world.

One is a first ascent on the West/Northwest aspect of Ri Wu Qie Feng in the Daxue Shan Range in Western China. The West face is an iconic pyramid of technical rock and ice with no obvious way to the top. Black Wolves and Blue Poppies is a 1300m, WI4+ AI6 M5+ route Jeff and Chris Gibisch climbed in 2011.

The second is the first ascent of the south face of Brammah II in the Kashmir Himalaya, India. A remote section of India known for its untapped potential after being reopened to climbing in 2012 after nearly 20 years of closure. Pneuma is a 1300m, VI AI4, M5 route that Jeff and Chris climbed in 2016.

Join us for Jeff’s presentation and hear more about climbing light and fast in remote mountain ranges around the world.

Special 50th anniversary screening of “Mountain of Storms,” featuring special guest Dick Dorworth. Presented by Patagonia

  • 7:30pm - Emerson Crawford Theater

  • General Seating. Senior and Student Discounts. $12 admission or VIP Pass

In 1968, five friends set out on a 5,000-mile road trip in a white Ford van bound for South America. They packed surfboards, skis, and climbing gear and documented the whole trip on a 16mm Bolex camera. From Ventura, California to a first ascent on Cerro Fitz Roy, with a stop for sand skiing and 31-days in an ice cave in between, Mountain of Storms not only prefigured the modern adventure movie, it serves as the mythological origin story behind the Patagonia name and philosophy, and informed a founding principle that would come to dominate these men’s lives for the next five decades: what’s important isn’t what you accomplished, it’s how you got there.

This Bozeman premiere of the newly remastered “Mountain of Storms” will be followed by a special screening of “Fitzroy” a film by Lito Tejada-Flores. This rarely seen art film (27 minutes) won the Grand Prize at the 1968 Trento Film Festival.

In August 2018, word filtered out of Pakistan that the fabled North Ridge of Latok 1 (7,145m) had finally been climbed. Following on the heals of a dramatic helicopter rescue of a Russian climber, Slovenian’s Ales Cesen and Luka Strazar, and Tom Livingstone made the first ascent of the mountain from the north via a variation to the North Ridge, and only the peak’s second ascent ever.

Latok's North Ridge has had a mythic appeal since the American team of Jim Donini, Michael Kennedy, George Lowe and Jeff Lowe nearly succeeded on the long, committing ridge in 1978. They came within a few hundred meters of the summit, but they retreated after Jeff Lowe nearly died from a sudden onset of altitude sickness. Thwarting the world’s best for another four decades, no one has yet surpassed their ridge high point, despite many attempts by elite alpinists over the years.

Come to the Emerson Crawford Theater to hear Tom Livingstone, tell his story first hand and share his thoughts on this historic ascent.

“The Dawn Wall” a film by Josh Lowell, Peter Mortimer and Brett Lowell
Special Guests - to be announced

  • 7:30pm - Emerson Crawford Theater

  • General Seating. Senior and Student Discounts. $18 admission or VIP Pass

  • Special VIP Reserved Seating Available - to be announced

In January, 2015, American rock climbers Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson captivated the world with their effort to climb The Dawn Wall, a seemingly impossible 3,000 foot rock face in Yosemite National Park, California. The pair lived on the sheer vertical cliff for weeks, igniting a frenzy of global media attention.

But for Tommy Caldwell, The Dawn Wall was much more than just a climb. It was the culmination of a lifetime defined by overcoming obstacles. At the age of 22, the climbing prodigy was taken hostage by rebels in Kyrgyzstan. Shortly after, he lost his index finger in an accident, but resolved to come back stronger. When his marriage fell apart, he escaped the pain by fixating on the extraordinary goal of free climbing The Dawn Wall.

Blurring the line between dedication and obsession, Caldwell and his partner Jorgeson spent six years meticulously plotting and practicing their route. On the final attempt, with the world watching, Caldwell is faced with a moment of truth. Should he abandon his partner to fulfill his ultimate dream, or risk his own success for the sake of their friendship?
