Belfast — A showing of the documentary film "Free Solo" at the Colonial Theatre at 4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 3, and rounding up at the Belfast Co-op in January will benefit a Coastal Mountains Land Trust fund that honors Skip Pendleton's extensive work on local trails.

Skip Pendleton was a teacher and leader who worked on nearly every trail in Belfast. The "Free Solo" showing honors his legacy by supporting the Pendleton Stewardship Internship Fund. Annually, stewardship interns will help build and maintain trails throughout Waldo County.

"Free Solo" is a dramatic climbing movie featuring Alex Honnold as he completes the first free solo climb of famed El Capitan's 3,000-foot vertical rock face at Yosemite National Park. It's billed as "a real nail-biter."

Advance tickets are available at $10 each at coastalmountains.org. Click "tickets" on the home page, under the picture of Skip and Jo Pendleton. Note: only cash and checks will be accepted at the Colonial on Feb 3.

Belfast Co-op patrons who shop there in January and "Round Up for Skip" will also be supporting internships for young people to maintain the Belfast area trails Pendleton built, maintained and loved.

The Pendleton Fund has a goal of $75,000, with over $40,000 raised to date.
