Alpenglow Sports’ fourth installment of the 10th anniversary Winter Film Series will feature internationally acclaimed alpinist Kelly Cordes.
The free show will be Feb. 25 at 7pm at Squaw Valley’s Olympic Village Lodge.
Cordes will present a sampling of the stories told in his 2015 book “The Tower,” a climbing historical of Patagonia’s otherworldly and iconic granite spire Cerro Torre. “The Tower” focuses on the much debated and polarizing climbing history of Cerro Torre, a granite spire that exists at the southern tip of Argentina between Patagonia’s wind-swept pampas and the Pacific Ocean. Its vertical and overhanging walls have attracted the finest and most devoted alpinists in the world, including some of the most obsessed.
The show is part of the larger Alpenglow Mountain Festival, a nine-day celebration of human-powered winter mountain sports, events, clinics, equipment demonstrations, presentations, film and more.
