“The Road From Karakol” with Kyle Dempster will be shown at the Ute Mountaineer on November 19th at 7pm. Kyle is the 2013 winner of the prestigious Piolet D’Or Award along with Carbondale climber Hayden Kennedy.
In Summer of 2011, alpinist Kyle Dempster set out across Kyrgyzstan’s back roads on his bike. His goal – ride across the country via old Soviet roads while climbing as many of the region’s impressive peaks as possible. He was alone. He carried only a minimalist’s ration of climbing gear. Ten Kyrgyz words rounded out his vocabulary. Part meditation on true spirit of adventure and part epic travelogue, The Road from Karakol is the story of a unique spirit who pedaled to the road’s end and decided to keep going.
Seating is limited so come early and shop at the Ute. There will be a question and answer session after the film. Prize giveaways, beer, wine, light snacks.
