“A Line Across The Sky”
This Thursday, Feb. 4, GPIW aka Great Pacific Iron Works aka Patagonia Ventura hosts an inspiring presentation by Patagonia climbing ambassador, Tommy Caldwell. The presentation will be followed by one of last year’s most impressive and entertaining climbing films A Line Across the Sky starring Tommy and Alex Honnold.
From the trailer description: “Long considered impossible, coveted by many and attempted by a few, the Fitz Traverse has fueled the imaginations of climbers in Patagonia for decades. Tracing the iconic skyline of Cerro Fitz Roy and its six satellite peaks, it spans four miles and 13,000 feet across snow and ice-covered rock, with epic route finding and endless rapelling. Seizing their chance during a rare extended weather window, Tommy Caldwell and Alex Honnold went big. “
Doors open at 6:30 pm — come early to grab a seat and socialize! Learn about Ventura Hillsides Conservancy and enjoy a beer from Topa Topa Brewing! Outside Presentation begins 7:30pm — bring a jacket! And a blanket!
BTW, Alex Honnold has a new book out, Alone on the Wall, that I’m definitely interested in checking out!
