Scheduled on Apr 8, 2009

In 1976, Indian Creek was a little-known, dried-up, ancient riverbed in southeastern Utah. But in that year the impossible became the possible: Earl Wiggins climbed Supercrack, a 300-foot vertical sandstone fracture from the ground up.

Indian Creek is now considered one of the finest international climbing destinations in the world. Luxury Liner is the story of a bold man behind an unthinkable idea. It pairs historical footage of the first ascent of Supercrack with recent interviews that reminisce on an earlier time, when climbing necessitated fearlessness, confidence, finesse and humility.

When Wiggins's ropemates Ed Webster and Bryan Becker return to Supercrack thirty years later to share memories, they come upon wisdom: simplicity is at the heart of climbing, even today, and the audacious foolishness of the past continues to resonate into the future.

Show starts at 7pm @ the American Alpine Club in Golden. Tickets are $10 - $5 for AAC members and $20 for the family (2 parents and your two kids)
