About the Movie
An American Ascent documents the first African American expedition to tackle Denali aka Mt. McKinley, North America’s highest peak. By embarking on the grueling multi-week climb of 20,237ft Denali, nine African American climbers try to shed light on the complex relationship many African Americans have with the outdoors by changing the face of America’s biggest and baddest mountain on the 100th anniversary of its first summit.
Meeting the Challenges
Great story and beautiful photography that make this a totally engrossing documentary. If anything could have been longer so we could explore more of the character of the African American team that commits to climb Denali and show their example to others.
