The 50th anniversary of an underground classic They called themselves Fun Hogs. In 1968, five friends took a road trip to climb Cerro Fitz Roy, and documented the whole thing on a 16mm Bolex. Along the way they surfed undiscovered breaks, skied on sand and snow, spent 31 days in a snow cave and made a first ascent on the mountain. Fifty years later this film, which defined a lifestyle and became an underground classic, is in its first wide release.

Climbing Fitz Roy, 1986 While San Francisco raved through the summer of love, three rock climbers, a skier and a filmmaker struck out on their own journey. The goal was the ascent of the iconic Cerro Fitz Roy in Patagonia, Chile. This six-month excursion resulted in the formation of a groundbreaking movie and several innovative companies (Patagonia, The North Face, Esprit) and the participants’ lifelong commitment to the environment.
