NYC Slideshow: Patagonia Miseries (Thurs, 11/13)
« on: November 11, 2003, 07:24:36 am »

ROB MECUS presents "PATAGONIA 2003: The Inner Workings of a Tent"
In January of 2003, Rob Mecus and Alex Donaldson took a trip to Argentina to explore the granite spires of Patagonia. They spent a month camping near Fitzroy and attempting to climb several peaks there. Legendary Patagonian weather hampered the climbing, but not the fun. See what happens when two Gunks craggers enter the world of super alpinism. Informational as well as inspirational.

December slideshow in the series:
"Babes in Thailand" by Kent Pierce
Wed, December 10 @ 8pm
Kent spent the better part of a wintery January in southern Thailand climbing bolted limestone on the beach. With expert photography, he captured the beauty of the climbing and the climber bodies (and the local climb, "Babes in Thailand"). Entertaining AND informational, Kent,s slideshow is full of logistical details for climbers who want to escape our blustery northeast winters.
