Exploration Film Tour

Join the Outing Club for a free screening of An American Ascent.

AN AMERICAN ASCENT is a documentary film about the first African-American expedition to tackle North America’s highest peak, Denali. By by taking on the grueling, 20,310 foot peak of the continent’s biggest mountain, nine African-American climbers set out to shrink this Adventure Gap by building a legacy of inclusion in the outdoor/adventure community. The film addresses often overlooked issues of race and the outdoors as it follows the team up the mountain, chronicling the many challenges of climbing one of the worlds most iconic peaks.

After the screening, there will be a Q&A about the film, and about opportunities with NOLS.
