First Ascents in Colorado’s Black Canyon and the Canyonlands of Utah -including a film of the First Ascent of Super Crack (1976) featuring Ed Webster

The perilous walls of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison River, and the fabled crack climbs and sandstone spires near Moab, Utah, are two of America’s most challenging and dangerous climbing areas. Rock climbing pioneer Ed Webster discovered and climbed many routes in “The Black” and “The Desert” over two decades ago--and today, they are some of the American West’s most legendary ascents. Ed will be showing slides of his most well-known rock climbs in these areas--including the first ascent of the infamous Super Crack in Indian Creek Canyon in 1976. His magazine articles and photographs have been published worldwide, plus he has authored five books, including Snow in the Kingdom, My Storm Years on Everest that Ed will be signing after the show. Show starts at 8:00 PM.
