Three world class mountain enthusiasts are teaming up for an audio visual presentation showing their love, passion, and inspirations for the mountains, for mountaineering, and for one other.
Join Rob Wood, Jimmy Martinello, and Alex Cairns this Saturday June 21 at the Quadra Community Centre at 7:30pm.
Rob Wood, local pioneering mountaineer, will present climbing in the past and the links to mountaineering traditions. Active climber, extreme skier and inspired photographer Jimmy Martinello from Squamish will illustrate present day mountaineering. And Alex Cairns, a brilliant young disabled skier from Squamish, will present what the future of mountaineering may hold.
Rob will show his Oldies But Goodies slide show. Jimmy's stunning photographs will include the first ascent of the northwest face of Mount Bute.
Proceeds go to the Vancouver Children's Hospital where Alex spent a lot of time as a youth.
