We are in the final editing stages of the Climb-it Change documentary that aims to raise awareness about the eminent impact of climate change on alpine ecosystems. The story follows our expedition traversing the entire Rocky Mountains from New Mexico to Jasper, climbing formidable peaks, and collecting data in 76 alpine sites across 6 States, 5 National Parks, and 2 countries. Along the way we interview prominent climate scientists, professors, wacky climbers, and fire fighters who all have stake in the future of the alpine.
Here are some short videos highlighting a few of our epic adventures along the way. Click on the video or title to watch.
As often as we can, we will post segments on the Climb-it Change youtube channel:
STUCK IN THE POWDER: On our very first day in the field, Matt and I experience “premature escalation”- the urge to climb too high too early in the season, and well….get stuck in the snow! A few locals in a Jeep try to get us and my car named “Powder” out, but they too get stuck….watch as we comically struggle to escape Quartz Mountain. Hahaha.
