Details:PROTECT LITTLE COTTONWOOD'S CLIMBING LEGACY

Join Alpenbock Club first ascensionists and Mayor Jenny Wilson for an evening honoring the rich history of Little Cottonwood climbing and learn what you can do to save it.

What: Special showing of The Grand Rescue film followed by a panel discussion on the impacts of a gondola to LCC

Includes light refreshments with the panelists

The Grand Rescue, a 58 minute film produced by Mayor Jenny Wilson, is a story of a rescue that became legend and captured the attention of the Nation. In 1967, on the North Face of the Grand Teton, park service rescuers risked their lives to save a climber and his companion. The climbers became stranded high on a ledge after rock fall caused a serious injury. The rescue took three harrowing days and pushed the team to new abilities. Remarkably, the injured climber was critical of those who risked their lives to save his. The Grand Rescue recounts an unprecedented rescue in American mountaineering.
The climbers in The Grand Rescue are the same first ascensionists who established Little Cottonwood climbing. Among these climbers were University of Utah students and were known as the Alpenbock Club.

Fast forward to 2023 and Little Cottonwood is in trouble. The same climbs the Alpenbock Club members established are enjoyed by thousands of climbers today. This historic climbing resource is under threat of destruction from a proposal by UDOT to build a massive gondola to service two ski resorts. Much like those in the film, we now need to Rescue Little Cottonwood. Join us and Protect Little Cottonwood's Climbing Legacy
