Legendary climber Pat Ament is coming to the NY/NJ area at the end of April/beginning of May. Pat's new film, The Disciples of Gill, is getting rave reviews. The film features John Gil, the greatest boulderer of all time.
If you are a climber, boulderer, hiker, love the outdoors, have an interest in climbing history, like merely to be inspired, or want to see a work of art, this is the night, this is the show! A MUST SEE!!!!!
Don't miss this film. It is one of the best you'll see on climbing — a tender, beautiful chronicle of the golden age of American bouldering. Former Climbing editor Matt Samet calls this film "one of the most splendid and beautiful meditations on climbing I have ever seen. It has made me a lifelong Pat Ament fan."

* Thursday, April 29, 8pm – $10 admission; The Gravity Vault, Chatham, NJ. * Friday, April 30, 8pm – $10 admission; The Cliffs at Valhalla, Valhalla, NY. * Saturday, May 1, 8pm – free admission; the Rock and Snow, New Paltz, NY. * Monday, May 3rd, 8pm – $10 admission; Brooklyn Boulders, Brooklyn, NY.
