      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Good documentary films

Recommended Posts

Just watched "When We Were Kings", the Muhammad Ali and George Foreman, Rumble in the Jungle Documentary. Great flick, inspiring. Any recommendations on more good documentaries? Trying to take advantage of the WWU audio visual library.

Has anyone ever seen (or better yet know where I could get it) the documentary about Chouinard and friends climb of Fitz Roy? Mountain of Storms by Chris Jones I believe...

I thought "Spellbound" was a great movie, as well.

The ones on the making of 'Fitzcarraldo' and 'Apocalypse now' are good documentaries on movie-making.
