Mountainfest Report 2010

Mountainfest 2010The 14th annual Adirondack International Mountainfest was held on January 15-17, 2010.

This year’s event featured a slide show by blind adventurer Erik Weihenmayer and world-class alpinist Steve House.  Steve is traveling the Northeast promoting his new book “Beyond The Mountain”. Steve said “this is my first and last book, I put everything I have into it” I look forward to reading it.

The Guest athletes  Steve House, Jim Shimberg and local guides Chuck Boyd, Emilie Drinkwater, Jeremy Haas, Carl Heilman, Matt Horner, Chad Kennedy, Colin Loher, Don Mellor and Jim Pitarresi  and Lori Crowingshield lead instructional clinics on ice climbing, mountaineering, snowshoeing and avalanche awareness . The weather was perfect and the participants enjoyed learning to ice climb and push the limits.

True to Mountainfest tradition of establishing new climbs, Matt McCormick and Bayard Russell opened up “Bossman” (M9-230′) on the High Falls Crag in Williminton Notch. This section of cliff had repelled many of the best climbers recently, including Steve House. More on this exceptional climb…

Many thanks to The Mountaineer,  Rock and River and everyone involved for all your hard work that make this festival a great success. Over the last 14 years the festival has raised more than $70,000 for the school, fire department and other local community causes. Thank  you

Steve is currently supporting the release of his first book with a tour of the North East. Look for him next at the White Mountain Ice Fest, North Conway NH – February 5, 6 & 7 2010
