See the NYC Premiere of the Film "Mountain"


ANNOUNCING THE NYC Film premiere, mountain

Friday, May 11
Village East, 189 2nd Ave.


A vertiginous juxtaposition of image and music that explores the powerful force that mountains hold over our imaginations. From Tibet to Australia, Alaska to Norway armed with drones, Go-Pros and helicopters, the filmmakers have fashioned an astonishing symphony of mountaineers, ice climbers, free soloists, heli-skiers, wingsuiters snowboarders and parachuting mountain bikers. Willem Dafoe provides a narration sampled from British mountaineer Robert Macfarlane's acclaimed memoir Mountains of the Mind, and a classical score from the Australian Chamber Orchestra accompanies this majestic cinematic experience. #Mountain

Section Gunks Work Weekend Wrap-Up

We had a beautiful weekend for the 3rd Annual Metro New York Section, Gunks Campground work weekend. Nineteen AAC Staff and volunteers turned out to helped get the campground ready for the 2018 season. We enjoyed a communal dinner, campfire, beverages & s'mores Saturday night. Sunday was a gorgeous day and most of us headed to the cliff for some well deserved climbing. A big thank you to all that lent a hand.
