In partnership with the show artists and producers, we have made the difficult decision to postpone or cancel the National Geographic Live: Improbable Ascent performance scheduled for Thursday, March 25, 2021 due to the ongoing impacts of COVID-19. Beginning August 26, all ticket purchasers will automatically receive a full refund for their order, credited back to the original payment method. This process may take up to three weeks to complete. We are actively working to secure alternate future dates for many of these performances. We will likely announce any rescheduled dates in mid-May of 2021.
After tackling some of the hardest climbs by a one-handed athlete and securing two world paraclimbing championships, Maureen yearned to push still further outside of her comfort zone. So when legendary adaptive climber Jim Ewing asked her to join his attempt to make the first adaptive ascent of one of North America’s classic, most wild towers—the Lotus Flower Tower in Canada’s Cirque of the Unclimbables—she didn’t hesitate. On their month-long expedition they dealt with rough weather, sudden illness, and a food shortage, yet Maureen found herself growing addicted again to the thrills and challenges of the sport.
With her trademark humor and wit, this 2019 National Geographic Adventurer of the Year will share how a little creativity and a whole lot of grit and determination have propelled her to the top of her field.
