September 12, 2019 An Open Night – All are Welcome
Adventures in the Lesser-Known Himalaya
Topic Beyond Everestrecounts Jim’s self-guided climbing expeditions of the 1980’s and 90’s, an era now thought of as the golden age of Himalayan mountaineering.
Jim Reflectsnot only on the physical elements of his adventures, but also on what he feels are the essential components of every real adventure; their aesthetics, their social and personal value and the moral challenges that adventurers face in a post- colonial, consumer-denominated world.
Jim is a cinematographer,
filmmaker and writer living in Ojai, California.
He has been a member of four, self-guided expeditions to the Andes, the Himalaya and the Karakoram, and led the 1992 American Makalu Expedition to the world’s 5 th highest mountain – each without oxygen and without Sherpa support above basecamp. In Fall of 2013 he traversed the Altai Mountains of Mongolia on camel and horseback in search of the elusive Snow Leopard and the deeper meaning that links animals to landscapes.
