Rock Ice Mountain Club Presentation - July 5, 2011
Anthony Lapomardo, Climbing Photographer
QUAINT BOULDERING AREAS AND HIDDEN SPORT CRAGS OF CALIFORNIA
Anthony Lapomardo is originally from the Central Valley. In the winter of 2008, he picked up a camera and has been unable to put it down, even when it hinders his climbing. Anthony’s interest is in reviving old areas and shooting boulder lines/sport climbs that have not seen the light of day in a publication. Currently, he is a contributor to Dead Point Magazine (DPM) and his photos and videos can be seen within the pages and on the website. Anthony’s show in July will be a mixed media presentation with three short (10min) films and lots of photos from small crags highlighting the enormity of California’s climbing potential. Come out and enjoy images of quaint bouldering areas and hidden sport crags throughout California.
