Watch Rock Climbing in B.C. in 1954 with ACC

A throwback to when technical rock climbing was new in Canada

In this short documentary vignette, members of the Alpine Club of Canada (ACC) display their skill and talk to host Fred Davis about why they climb.

The film take us to a ten-thousand-foot peak in Yoho National Park, a practice slope on Grouse Mountain near Vancouver, and a steep precipice known as Devil’s Leap, providing ample scope for a demonstration of mountain climbing.

Be sure to follow the ACC below.
