The San Diego Chapter of the American Alpine Club will host a screening of the short climbing film Adaptive, which documents the first all-adaptive ascent of the über classic and deeply remote Lotus Flower Tower (5.10+) in Canada's Cirque of the Unclimbables.
Jim Ewing (a Sterling Rope engineer and below-the-knee amputee) and Maureen Beck (a professional climber who was born without her left hand), show viewers that the ability to adapt is universal and a common thread that unites us.
Both Jim and Maureen will be here for the event, and Jim will be teaching a Rope 101 clinic, covering the topics of rope production and retirement. After the film, we will have a Q&A with Jim and Maureen (come prepared with questions) and a raffle supporting the American Alpine Club and Paradox Sports.
