Kelly Cordes will present a show focusing on his recent alpine
climbing adventures in Pakistan and Patagonia. Cordes climbing has
taken him around the world, and his lightweight-style outings have
ranged from complete flops to new ice and mixed lines in the Alaska
Range and Perus Cordillera Blanca, to one of the biggest rock climbs in history, on Great Trango Tower in Pakistans Karakoram Mountains.
Last summer, he had an excellent failure on Shingu Charpa, in
Pakistan, climbing 45 pitches only to come up short on the summit. In early January, on his first trip to Patagonia, he got away with a
bold new link-up on Cerro Torre, from with hes still milking the
Im recovering excuse while drinking beer and watching TV.
