Jeff Lowe is a mountaineering pioneer. He was also very instrumental in starting the Ouray Ice Festival that occurs in our little berg every January at the worlds first manmade ice park, the Ouray Ice Park. We proudly pledge our support for his current project: "Metanoia". This project will be a movie about a nearly impossible solo climb that Jeff did over twenty years ago on the face of the Eiger. Since he made that climb, no one else has been able to accomplish that feat. With the Eiger as a backdrop, this film will chronicle Jeff's life and his accomplishments and be narrated by Jon Krakauer as well as track a young swiss climber that will make an attempt to conquer that route. Check out the project details by watching the movie trailer:
If you are interested in joining the cause or would like more information on the project, check out the project details page on kickstarter.org.
What we also love about this project is that the profits will be shared with important organizations including Paradox Sports, an incredible organization whose mission is to bring the wonderful world of the outdoors to active, disabled people.
