Don't miss this film. It is one of the best you'll see on climbing, a tender, beautiful chronicle of the golden age of American bouldering. Climbing Magazine editor, Matt Samet calls this film, "one of the most splendid and beautiful meditations on climbing I have ever seen. It has made me a lifelong Pat Ament fan."

Bump for all you Easterners out there. Southeasterners too...maybe this is a good weekend for a road trip north, eh?

By the way, Rock and Snow is having a shoe demo day on May 1st, the day of Pat's showing. You can take a sample pair of shoes out to the crags for the day, bring 'em back that evening and then watch the movie.

nice to see this film getting out to the East! Still a bit too far away for me, though.

Bump for the East Coast shows, which are this week.

There's a brief bit in The Colorado Daily about the movie, published just before the show at Neptune's:

http://www.coloradodaily.com/...847346#axzz0jyk2IxKu

Here are some "reviews" from the California showings:


I saw Pat last night at Stanford. I was very inspired. This documentary story telling has fantastic footage and interviews. Its a very real, touching look at a sport that was 30-40 years ahead of its time.

I kept trying to figure out who was doing the background music. It sounded like Dylan lyrics but with Jonny cash's voice. Turns out it was Pat. Quite the artist.

---------------------------------------------------

Pat's video was almost like a time machine to me... the images of Gill doing those boulder problems were truly amazing, and the stories of the "disciples" dislodged memories of heard rumors of a group of extraordinary boulderers, like Jim Holloway. It was wonderful to see them in their prime, from a period in the history of climbing when the tribes of climbers had little contact with each other.

Pat's narrative technique worked well, it was story telling... generation to generation, in the most gentle way from father to daughter. Then the story told from the interviewers to the audience, which was another generation to generation communication.

Thanks to ... Pat for putting his creative energy into this video and taking it on the road.
