    Vertical World Climbing Gyms, Mountaineers Books, and the American Alpine Club - Cascade Section are proud to host Jim Herrington as he presents his photography book The Climbers (Mountaineers Books), the culmination of a two-decade project to track down and document the surviving legendary climbers of the early-to-mid 20th Century ‘Golden Age’ of climbing. These are the men and women from around the world who were vertically active between the 1920s and 1970s and who were at the cutting edge of an activity mostly unknown to the general public of the time.Published in October 2017, The Climbers received both the Grand Prize and the Mountaineering History Award at the 2017 Banff Film & Book Festival.Jim’s talk and slide show will begin with a brief encapsulation of his 35-year photography career, including his foray into the worlds of music and showbiz. He will move on to the climbers, detailing the inspiring and captivating stories of the climbers and their era as well as describing his unusual efforts to locate and arrive on the doorstep of these aging legends. The travels and travails he undertook to complete this far-flung project are not without anecdotes of despair, humor and adventure. What is it like to be 98 years old and to look back at an uncompromising life spent in the “useless” quest of first ascents, usually far from home and hearth? The momentum and vigor of youth is not an ideal recipe for introspection, but one’s final years certainly suffice. Herrington learned as much about himself as he did his subjects during the project – the cost and reward of obsession and how to live in the present. Jim began this series shooting with black-and-white analog film, yet during the course of the project, with the advent of digital photography, it looked as if film would disappear completely—like hemp rope or hobnail boots. Indeed, at times it was difficult to know which would vanish first, the climbers he was photographing or the film he was using. Luckily, film got an eleventh hour reprieve and he was pleased to be able to shoot the entirety of this book on silver nitrate, which remains his chosen method of taking pictures to this day. Herrington will recount what it was like to step into these climber’s homes, their lives, and their history. Seemingly time-traveling from the classic mountaineering literature he devoured as a young boy into the living rooms of these aging legends, this is his rogue’s gallery, a sampling of, and an ode to, an era. The Climbers, published in October 2017, received both the Grand Prize and the Mountaineering History Award at the 2017 Banff Film & Book Festival. Tickets are $8 on the link provided and $10 at the door. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-climbers-a-photo-documentary-with-jim-herrington-tickets-42142550503 JimHerrington.com

    Vertical World presents DIRTBAG: THE LEGEND OF FRED BECKEY with the American Alpine ClubHailed as one of the most influential climbers of all time, Fred Beckey is the original American “Dirtbag"–one who abandons societal norms and material comforts in pursuit of a nomadic mountaineering lifestyle.This rebel athlete’s lifetime of accomplishments set the bar for the entire sport. He shattered records with an unparalleled string of superhuman first ascents, bushwhacking trails and pioneering direct routes thought previously impassable.Beckey burned bridges, eschewed fame and stayed unencumbered so his only obligation would remain conquering the next summit. He kept meticulous personal journals where he mused on everything from arcane geology to his romantic life, to the myriad sunrises he witnessed from vantages not seen by anyone else on Earth. An environmentalist before there was such a term, Beckey’s legacy includes 13 essential books that act as blueprints for new generations. He defiantly continued climbing until passing away in October 2017 at age 94.Tickets are limited and are $10 online and $12 at the door.Beer from Georgetown Brewing will be provided.

    Last spring, Trevor Kostanich and Forest McBrian skied a high route from Snoqualmie Pass to Canada in 34 days. They would have preferred staying out longer. Both passionate ski tourers and pioneers of various traverses in the range, Trevor & Forest spent years working towards this trip. Come hear what it took to pull off, why this route, and see some section highlights including first descents. While surprised, and sincerely a little disappointed, that they did not see more people along the route, they were pleased to tour alongside some animal tracks and gain a greater appreciation for high mountain living. Ticket proceeds go to the Cascades Wolverine Project with special guest David Moskowitz (wildlife tracker, photographer, and outdoor educator) sharing a short informational video at the event.

    LIVING NORTHWEST HISTORY: REFLECTIONS ON THE PAST AND FUTURE OF NORTHWEST MOUNTAINEERING The Pacific Northwest has a rich heritage of mountain exploration, activism, literature, and art.

He is the creator of the Alpenglow Gallery and founder of the Northwest Mountaineering Journal, websites that celebrate local mountain culture.

    Famed Mountaineer Fred Beckey first travelled to the Himalaya in 1955 as a member of the International Himalayan Expedition.Their objective: To make the first ascent of Lhotse, a part of the Everest massif. At 27,940 feet, this is the fourth highest mountain in the world.Over the next nearly-sixty years Fred made multiple trips back to the Himalaya.His interests were in finding unclimbed peaks, establishing new routes on previously climbed peaks, trekking untrodden, remote mountain valleys, and the study and exploration of sub-ranges of various Asian Mountains and the Himals.This short evening lecture will focus on the goals of the Lhotse Expedition, and analyse controversies that arose with this climb, and resultant outcomes. Time permitting, the detail and objectives of subsequent trips will also be discussed, and include the ambitious plans of what had been Fred Beckey's most recent Himalayan objective, which would have been to travel next year (2018), to a remote valley in the Garhwal of Northern India. Fred Beckey recently died at age ninety-four. He lived a life that centered on mountains, climbing, scholarship, research and creating a legacy that will endure for generations to come. The speaker, Megan E. Bond, is also Fred Beckey's biographer and will read excerpts from her writings, which will be published by Mountaineers Books. Over the course of a decade, she and Fred made multiple exploratory trips together to Nepal, India, China and Tibet. *There is no charge for this event, but please Register for a 'Ticket' as capacity is limited to forty people.

    Presenter: Robin Kodner Snow Algae: Small Organisms, Big Impact How is Climate Change affecting life within the snow? Dr. Robin Kodner of Western Washington University will be presenting research on snow algae communities across the cascades and how citizen scientists can get involved. About Robin: Assistant Professor, Biology Department, WWU Robin Kodner has been an assistant professor of Biology at Western Washington University since 2012. She earned her PhD at Harvard University in the Department of Organismal and Evolutionary Biology, followed by a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Washington Friday Harbor Labs and School of Oceanography. Robin started her research career studying algal evolution over geologic time and moved to studying modern marine algal communities so that we could learn how they are responding to climate change. Her passion for being in the mountains has led Robin to expand her marine-based research into the mountains, applying the environmental genomic techniques to study snow algae communities. She is using the snow microbiome as a model to understand how communities evolve in response to climate change. In addition to her work, Robin has been an outdoor educator for over 15 years in the mountains and on sailboats. She uses both the ocean and mountain environments as platforms for teaching basic sciences. Kid Friendly
