A Mazama Film

Directed by Adam Baylor / Produced by Jeff Thomas / Director of Photography Sean O'Connor

About The Project

Beacon Rock, located in the Columbia River Gorge, is a 55-million-year-old volcano core. It is a monolith that has magnetized climbers, such as the Mazamas, for more than a century.  

This short, documentary film, Beacon Rock: Then & Now, explores three epic first ascents of the 854-foot wonderland.  Production of the film was made possible by the generous support of the Mazamas and many Beacon Rock dirtbags. Join storytellers and climbers as they weave together tales from the past forever captured in this cinematic journey.  (18 min., 13 sec.)
