About “The 46ers”

The 46ers is a feature film that captures the imagination and inspiration of those who make scaling the 46 Adirondack Mountain High Peaks in northern New York State a life-changing experience in their lives.

The film provides an introduction to the men and women of the Adirondack 46ers Club, a group that supports the hiking of the high peaks in summer and winter. As spectacular as the vistas are as seen atop 19 of the High Peaks including Cascasde and Porter, so are the moving stories of individuals who set out to move through the mountains at paces that range from intense to gentle. The result: memories and stories that last a lifetime.

What draws these people?  It is not all beautiful views and comfortable conditions, because climbing these mountains is tough. The journey can be treacherous, even life threatening; yet these individuals persevere.
