Directed by JMT graduate and filmmaker Jennings Barmore, this short film explores a truly unique alpine climbing program for keen high school aged kids.


A Bit on the Program

The Junior Mountaineering Team gives enthusiastic kids the tools they need to explore their local mountains and the adventures that lay beyond: to make them alpinists. While this mission may have a clear technical focus, the impact that the JMT has on its participants goes far beyond learning about ropes, knots, and climbing technique. This program instills not only a rich aesthetic appreciation for the natural environment but also helps participants gain a deeper awareness about their own inner landscapes and their inter-relatedness to the Earth and those around them. Through an amalgamation of all that is experienced and learned throughout this program, the ultimate objective of the JMT is to develop community leaders with a critical consciousness of the essential facets of life.
