It's rare to find cool mountain climbing films like The Last Wild Mountain which is currently still in production. They guys behind this climbing fims have been working on this project for over 3 years. Other than a film, it's a cultural history project, intended to preserve the oral histories of this sub culture for generations to come. But they need your help! Their Kickstarter campaign goes directly to the finishing process: paying for rights and process of the footage and photographs so that we can distribute this film to audiences around the country.
"The pioneers of American rock climbing were often shunned as "dirtbags" and deserters of the American Dream, but our film seeks to show that climbing roots were inextricably linked to the culture of greater America and its growing pains, shifting from the last unknown continent to developed superpower. This story is about wanderlust in the modern age, and how it is played out in the world of rock climbing. It contrasts the electricity of adventure with the fragility of life, while encouraging thought on our existence in an evolving and disappearing natural world. Check out part of the film below...
