â€œIf you really want to have an adventure that's not going to be sexy--it's gonna be dirty and it's gonna be rowdy--there's a place a out here for you,â€ says Josh Ewing. â€œIt's the chance to do something where you're not going to see another climber.â€
In the beginning, Josh came to Bears Ears, Utah in search of adventure. But the more time he spent there, the less his relationship with the landscape had to do with first ascents, and the more it had to do with connecting to the current people and ancient cultures who call Bears Ears home. Now, Josh is a leader in the fight to protect the 1.9 million acres of wild, history-rich, red sandstone landscape.
For the first episode of our â€œEndangered Spacesâ€ series, a series about threatened places and the people who care for them, we take you to Bears Ears National Monument to follow Joshâ€™s transformation from climber to climber-activist.
