The North Face Speaker Series: Rock Climber Mark Synnott on "Life on the Vertical"
Mark Synnott has a mission: To seek out and climb the world's most remote cliffs. For Synnott, the journey is as important as the climb, and his quest has taken him from the Arctic to Asia's Karakoram Mountains to Amazonian jungles.
Exploring seldom-seen places is his specialty. Most recently he discovered the Ennedi desert of Chad in North Africa, where his team of top-notch climbers made first ascents of surreal and other-worldly rock spires and arches. Synnott is a skilled raconteur who tempers his tales of high adrenalin with droll humor. With breathtaking images, this evening with Mark is a celebration of adventure.
