Northern Arizona Climbers Coalition SUMMER SHOWCASE SERIES @ The Orpheum Theater
Jun 27 @ 6:00 pm
Join us at our June showcase featuring our favorite climbing shorts from the past year, benefiting the Northern Arizona Climbers Coalition!

ABOUT NAZCC:
The Northern Arizona Climbers Coalition is an advocacy group dedicated to preserving public access and promoting stewardship of climbing resources throughout Northern Arizona. We encourage responsible environmental stewardship and safe climbing practices, engage and celebrate both new and long-time members of the climbing community, and aim to build relationships with local land managers.

FILM LINEUP:
Silence – 18 min
What does it take to climb the world’s hardest route? The 17-min movie documents Adam Ondra, a professional rock climber from Czechia, as he made a piece of climbing history when he climbed his project in Norway in September 2017. The route called Silence, received a new grade of 9c (5.15d). Directed by Bernardo Gimenez.

Choices – 21 min
Steph Davis chose climbing. The law student left school in her early twenties and followed her passion for the sport, earning a number of climbing achievements from Yosemite to Patagonia. For a while she called her car home before eventually settling in Moab, Utah, and discovered her second passion: BASE jumping. Although she’s suffered many losses, including the death of her husband Mario Richards in a wingsuit accident, she’s never regretted having chosen her unconventional way of life—a life full of extraordinary choices proving that what seems to be a wrong decision at first can be the right one. Directed by Teresa Hoerl.

Two Nineteen Forty Four – 7 min
On a cold, misty morning in late October 2017, after 11 previous attempts, climbers Brad Gobright and Jim Reynolds broke the standing speed record (formerly held by Alex Honnold and Hans Florine) on The Nose of El Capitan, in Yosemite National Park, with an unbelievable new time of 2 hours, 19 minutes, and 44 seconds. Experience their record-breaking climb in this genre-bending timelapse by Tristan Greszko. Directed by Tristan Greszko.

Liv Along The Way – 22 min
Since she first summited Mont Blanc as a teen, Liv Sansoz knew she would make her life in the mountains. She was twice crowned World Champion in sport climbing, and eventually expanded her professional horizons to mixed climbing, ski mountaineering, and base jumping. In 2017, at 40 years old, Liv set out from her base in Chamonix, France to attempt to climb all 82 4000m peaks in the European Alps in a single year. As she’s learned several times throughout her life, things don’t always go as planned. Directed by Mike Douglas.

Real Rock ‘An Urban Climbing Experience’ – 11 min
In the last 100 years, humans have discovered no new mountains. But we’ve built so many new buildings. As the last remaining first ascents are claimed on the mountains of the world, there’s only one direction climbing can go: to the cities. Directed by Drew Herder.

Inwards – 12 min
Bernd Arnold is one of the exceptionally gifted climbers of the 20th century. For two decades he made up some of the worlds hardest first ascents. Names like “Riders on the Storm” or „Royal Flush” in Patagonia are only some of them. Most of his routes he set up in the notorious German area of sandstone towers – Saxonian Switzerland. Some of them even barefoot. In an emphatic short the 70 years old climbing pioneer bridges between success in climbing and inner experiences. From the roots of childhood to distant mountain regions and friendship he draws a line back home to present days. Directed by Ulf Wogenstein.

Notes from the Wall – 34 min
19 days on a 1200-meter-high vertical wall in Torres del Paine, Patagonia. An honest and profound story of an ascent spiced up by rough weather conditions, technical climbing and live music. directed by Siebe Vanhee, Nicolas Favresse, and Sean Villanueva O’Driscoll.

Red Rock Loop History Tours by Sedona Heritage Museum
Jul 1 @ 9:00 am

            The Sedona Heritage Museum will host another round of their popular local history tours, on October 2, 3, 4, and 5, this time visiting historic sites, homesteads and buildings while following the Red Rock Loop Road.

            ‘Red Rock’ was what the area around the base of Cathedral Rock was known as long before anyone ever heard of the name ‘Sedona’.  Tour guide Paul Thompson, grandson of Oak Creek Canyon’s first permanent Anglo settler J.J. Thompson, spent his earliest growing up years in Red Rock. Thompson leads these tours every year as a way of sharing his family’s long history in the area and as a way to give back to the Museum for their preservation work.

            The tour will visit the Chavez place, Dumas Ranch, Schuerman-Red Rock Cemetery, Schuerman family homestead house, the Armijo homestead house (on the National Register of Historic Places), ruins of our first school (1891), site of an early Oak Creek vineyard and an irrigation flume made of barrels, plus other sites, while hearing stories of the historic themes and people who inhabited this ‘original’ seat of civilization for our area.

            Tours are October 2, 3, 4, and 5 from 2 p.m.-5 p.m.  Space is limited on the luxury coaches.  Tickets are $60/Museum members, and $70/non-members and available for purchase at the Museum or by calling 928-282-7038.

            The Sedona Heritage Museum is located in Jordan Historical Park at 735 Jordan Rd. in Uptown Sedona.  The Museum is housed in historic structures on the National Register of Historic Places.  www.sedonamuseum.org

First Friday – In their own words living history presentation @ Historic Clark Memorial Clubhouse Mens' Lounge
Jul 5 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am
First Friday – In their own words living history presentation will feature “From the Old Sullivan Ranch to the story of Clarkdale Artist Don Reitz and Today’s Reitz Ranch” on Friday, July 5, at 10:00am in the Historic Clark Memorial Clubhouse Mens’ Lounge.  The program will be presented by Ben Roti, Ceramic Artist and former Studio Assistant to Ceramic Artist Don Reitz.  Jerry Wombacher, Clarkdale Historical Society and Museum Historian, will also share some of his memories of the Old Sullivan Ranch which was part of Clarkdale’s ranching history from the late 1880’s forward.  “I remember the Sullivan brothers from Jerome drove an old beat-up pickup truck down through Clarkdale nearly every day to go out to work the ranch off of Sycamore Canyon Road.  The brothers parents owned the Sullivan Hotel in Jerome to the best of my knowledge” Wombacher said.  “They got water for the ranch from a ditch that ran through the canyon and stored ranching equipment on the land, but I do not remember anyone actually living out there” he continued.  The ranch is still located off of Sycamore Canyon Road near the TAPCO plant and is open by appointment only.
While the story begins with the ranching days of agricultural development, the ranch has transposed into several new adventures of economic development in more recent years. In 1988, ceramic artist Don Reitz bought the property where he established his studio and production facility for wood-fired pottery.  Before arriving in Arizona, Reitz was named one of the top twelve world’s greatest living potters by Ceramic Monthly magazine. Reitz occupied the property where he referred to the Verde River as his “greatest inspiration” until his death in 2014.
Today, the thirteen plus acre ranch is known as Reitz Ranch Center for Ceramic Arts. Owned by ceramic artist Sheryl Leigh-DeVault and her husband Ted DeVault, it operates in the memory of Don Reitz as a working studio and production facility for wood-firing ceramic artists across the world.  Ben Roti is currently a ceramics instructor and part of the team that is building the arts program at today’s Reitz Ranch.
Next month’s First Fridays-In their own words living history presentation is on August 2, at 10:00am in the Historic Clark Memorial Clubhouse Men’s Lounge.  Featured speakers will be long-time Clarkdale resident Barbara DeVault and her daughters who will present “Mother and Daughter Views of Old Clarkdale”.
These programs are open to all. There is no admission to attend. Contributions are gratefully accepted. A suggested contribution of $5 per person helps the Clarkdale Historical Society and Museum to preserve, interpret and share the history and cultural heritage of the Clarkdale area.  The Clarkdale Historical Society and Museum is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.  Contributions are deductible to the extent the laws allow.
The Clarkdale Historical Society and Museum is Clarkdale’s only organization and museum totally dedicated to collecting, preserving, exhibiting, interpreting and sharing the heritage of the community and its citizens.  For more information, please call 928-649-1198 or visit www.clarkdalemuseum.org. and find us on Facebook!
