Mary Catherine Eden presents

Necronomicon: Cracking the Limits

Thursday, March 28, 2024, 7-9 p.m.

Mary Catherin Eden is a master of many things: climbing, painting, film making. If she wants to know her medium, rock or art she gives it her all until she can call it her own!

Necronomicon: Cracking the Limits” immerses audiences in the journey of professional climber Mary Eden as she attempts to climb the seemingly impossible Necronomicon, a daunting 100- foot roof crack in Canyonlands National Park. Beyond the physical demands of the route, Mary grapples with internal pressures, questioning her own worthiness to undertake such a formidable climb. Should she succeed, Mary would join only a handful of accomplished women who have climbed a traditional route graded 5.14.

Spencer McKay makes their directorial debut in this groundbreaking short film starring Mary Eden and Tom Randall.

AMC Schools

The Arizona Mountaineering Club has been teaching outdoor rock climbing for nearly 60 years. As an all-volunteer organization, AMC is able to offer the most comprehensive training at a very low cost to AMC members.  For complete course details and the upcoming schedule, please see our Schools page at

Basic Outdoor Rock Climbing - This rock school is for new climbers, gym climbers wanting to transition to outdoor rock or anyone who learned from friends, but wants to fill in knowledge gaps.  We'll learn the current Best Practices in rock climbing and self-rescue basics over the course of 4 evenings and 3 all-day weekend sessions.

Anchors - This course is the next step for AMC Outdoor Rock Climbing grads. You'll learn how to safely and efficiently build trad and sport anchors for all aspects of climbing.  Combined with the skills learned in the Outdoor Rock Climbing School, you will have tall the skills required for safe top-rope climbing.

Lead - Is it time to move to the sharp end of the rope?  This is an advanced climbing class.  All aspects of lead climbing will be addressed with a strong emphasis on multi-pitch trad climbing.  Topics include gear (ropes and pro), the dynamics of lead falls, solid gear placement, rope management, anchors, and the mental as well as physical aspects of sport and trad leading. This class is for every competent climber. Even if you do not plan on leading, you will learn and understand the dynamics of lead climbing, and it will make you a more knowledgeable and capable climber and second.

Mountaineering - The AMC provides an excellent opportunity to network with fellow members with significant alpine skills and experience.  In addition to the opportunity to share and learn with fellow members, the AMC continues to develop partnerships with noted guide services for top-notch professional training in the alpine environment of rock and ice.
