The 46ers is a feature film that captures the imagination and inspiration of those who make scaling the 46 Adirondack High Peaks a life-changing experience.
The film provides and introduction to the men and women of the Adirondack 46er Club. It follows the stories of ordinary men and women who have done the extraordinary. 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.
As spectacular as the vistas are as seen atop the peaks, so are the moving stories of individuals who set out to traverse the mountains at paces that range from intense to gentle. The result: memories and stories that last a lifetime, including those of Pete Fish, who has hiked Mt. Marcy, the highest peak in NY, more than 700 times and Ron Konowitz, the first to ski all 46 High Peaks.
