adrian burgess is a world-famous, highly respected, professional mountaineer who for over 25
years has pursued some exhilarating and difficult climbs all over the world. adrian has
traveled all over the world climbing, and has spent over 10 years traveling around the
country giving slide shows and motivational talks. adrian represents the historical
backbone of high-altitude climbing at its finest. his current show, "in search of everest"
is an autobiographical account of over 25 years of climbing from alaska to patagonia, the
alps to the himalaya, and everywhere in between. this show is not just a show about
climbing, but is about a journey through life where learning comes from the harsh realities
found on steep rock and ice and in the thin air up on high-altitude peaks. adrian's show
and message is about embracing life and living it to the fullest. the show draws from a
pool of thousands of incredibly stunning photos of some of the world's most incredible
mountain scenery. adrian (along with his brother) is one of the pioneers of smaller,
alpine style climbs on big mountains, and along with his twin brother alan, reached the
summit of everest in a lightning quick three-day ascent with only 17.5 hours of climbing.
adrian has been involved in dozens of major expeditions and has been featured in many
mountaineering books and journals, as well as television and film documentaries. adrian
has also written many articles for several international journals and magazines. most
recently adrian and alan have published their autobiography, "the burgess book of lies"
which tells first hand about their incredible life and times in the mountains and beyond.
come join us on thursday, march 6, at 8pm to hear from and talk with adrian about his life
and times as a climber. the pictures and stories will no doubt be memorable and of course
worth the price of admission...which of course is FREE TO PENNCARD HOLDERS and ONLY $5.00
FOR THE GENERAL PUBLIC. before the banff mountain film festival comes to philadelphia on
march 7 and 8, courtesy of philadelphia rock gym come see adrian burgess at penn.http://www.philarockgym.com

by coming to see one of the world's best and of course most interesting.
