Help celebrate an exciting year for the Club at our annual dinner at the Red Hook Brewery. Meet other AAC members and meet our new Community Programs Director John Bragg. He was one of the pioneers of the free climbing revolution in the United States, helped push the standards of ice climbing by opening hard new routes in the NE, and was part of the historic ascents of the Torre Egger and Cerro Torre.

Featuring:

 “Adventures and Misadventures in Patagonia” by John Bragg

The Fitzroy area of Patagonia, once the far edge of the frontier of world alpinism, is now a well traveled center for climbing and trekking, but the mountains of Patagonia outside of the Fitzroy group remain those of mystery and adventure.

John Bragg has been travelling to this far tip of South America to climb and explore for more than 30 years.  His multi-media presentation describes several of those expeditions, from the first ascent of Torre Egger, to the second ascent of Cerro Torre, to explorations and climbs in remote areas.  Along the way, we learn some of the early history of the area, as well as of the early climbs and the controversy surrounding the claimed first ascent of Cerro Torre, one of the great mysteries of modern mountaineering.

 Told in stunning pictures, music, narration and animation this presentation shows us not only one man’s adventures, but also a window into the climbing world’s enduring obsession with the mountains of Patagonia. 

Join us for this great show and to see what the club will be up to in the new year!
