Adventures in the Vertical World presented by Erik Weihenmayer - $7 tickets (receive Neptune coupon the night of the show)
Since climbing the Seven Summits and becoming the only blind person to complete this journey, Erik Weihenmayer has undertaken extraordinary expeditions and projects around the world. Most recently, Erik climbed the Naked Edge, a classic highly-technical rock climb in Eldorado Canyon State Park with Access Fund Executive Director Brady Robinson and Charley Mace. The goal of this climb was to raise awareness for the Access Fund, the national non-profit advocacy organization that keeps climbing areas open and conserves the climbing environment.
Join Erik to learn more about his adventures in the vertical world and see the incredible video, Blind and Naked, of Erik climbing the Naked Edge. Also hear first-hand accounts from Brady Robinson, Charley Mace, and North Face Athlete and videographer Cedar Wright about their involvement in this incredible achievement. All proceeds from the evening go to support the work of the Access Fund. Tickets on-sale at the Access Funds website at: www.accessfund.org/blindandnakedtickets and the night of the show at Neptune Mountaineering. Show starts at 8:00 PM.
