A pioneering big wall climber, Mark is one of the most prolific adventurers of his generation. He has pioneered four big wall first ascents on Baffin Island’s remote east coast, including a grade VII on the 4,700-foot north face of Polar Sun Spire. In Pakistan’s Karakoram Mountains, he established two grade VII big wall first ascents. One, a 6,000-foot wall topping out over 20,000 feet, is one of the longest rock climbs in the world. Closer to home, Mark has climbed Yosemite’s El Capitan 22 times, including several one-day ascents.
Recommended for ages 10 and up. For the consideration of all patrons, children on laps and/or babes in arms are not permitted at most Victoria Theatre Association presentations.
