Free screening of "Ordinary Mountaineers" Film by Dan Nash

The short film, “Ordinary Mountaineers” is not the story of professional athletes, or professional climbers, but the story of 12 ordinary people, with normal jobs, families, dreams and desires, that decide to attempt to climb a 19,000 foot peak in Peru. For most everyone on this trip, this will be their first attempt to climb a big mountain and together they will learn about the trials and tribulations, the mental and physical struggles, the successes and failures and what it takes to be successful on such an endeavor. Please join us at the Little Rock Climbing Center for a great night screening the film followed by a questions and answer session with the film producer and expedition leader Dan Nash.

Dan Nash founded Hiking the Ozarks in 2007, after spending most of his life in the outdoors, backpacking, hiking, rock climbing and camping. As the CEO, Dan coordinates the various programs offered by Hiking the Ozarks, along with instructing various outdoor education classes, participating in the guiding program and testing and reviewing gear for various outdoor companies and places like the Gear Institute, Backpackers Review and Backpacker Magazine. Dan has backpacked, climbed and guided on 5 continents and in both the Himalaya and Ande ranges. Dan is certifed as a Level III Backpacking Guide through the Professional Hiking Guides Association (PHGA), along with being on the board of directors for the PHGA.

    This film is a fraud: Neither are any of those "ordinary mountaineers" on their first mountain, nor is Dan Nash the filmmaker. Due to a trick and coldblooded pressure with his fiancee and lawyer, they forced 24 year old filmmaker Klara Harden to make a film for him that he now calls his own. She risked her life making this film, believing his "promises" about sharing and being fair. He used her name, talent and big internet-fan-community in order to win sponsors for his mountain trip. He changed the film to a point where it is far away from truth and heart. Don't fall for this film. He did something that would be illegal in Europe, but he knew Harden could financially never be able to take it to court in USA.

    Amber! I am so sorry I didn't introduce myself to you. I wasn't sure who was there with the meetup. Glad you came. Maybe I'll see you on a trail soon.
