With professional photography, audio clips, and short videos, Garlick
tells stories from her latest two expeditions: a journey to the
granite big walls of South Greenland, and an exploration of the Wadi
Rum desert in Jordan. Garlick’s presentation focuses on the common
core of both expeditions: a quest to find—and climb—untouched cliffs
in some of the world’s wildest locations. Garlick talks about what it
takes to be an expedition climber in the modern era, from discovering
an objective and putting together a team, to the inevitable ups and
downs of the journey itself.
“Wild Stone” shares stories and images of Garlick’s 2010 expedition to
Greenland, where she and her three teammates established a new,
2,000-foot free route up a remote granite wall. This expedition was
supported by the prestigious Copp-Dash Inspire Award.
The presentation also premiers new photography and video footage from
an expedition to the Wadi Rum desert in Jordan last winter, where
Garlick and fellow climber Caroline George established a new sandstone
adventure route called Uprising (5.11).
