Reel Rock 14 – Eagle Climbing + Fitness
November 8 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
This November, REEL ROCK 14 blazes across the planet with a brand new collection of the year’s best climbing films, delivering jaw-dropping action, soulful journeys and rollicking humor.
We will be projecting the film on a huge professional screen on our climbing wall. The cost is $15 for students and $20 for adults, showtime is 6:30 p.m. (doors at 6:00 p.m.) ALL proceeds will go to the Live Like Logan Foundation, to raise money for scholarships for children with financial need to explore non-traditional sports like climbing, kayaking and telemark skiing.
THE HIGH ROAD: While the world’s best boulderers push standards close to the ground, Nina Williams’ sights are set higher. She is among the only women who climb elite-level problems that are 30, 40, even 50 feet tall — with no rope. In this profile of an emerging star athlete, Nina Williams flexes her guns and tests her nerves well into the no-fall zone.
THE NOSE SPEED RECORD: For decades, an elite handful of climbers have competed for the coveted speed record on the 3,000-foot Nose of El Capitan, risking big falls to shave mere seconds off the fastest time. When a record held by superstar Alex Honnold is broken by little-known climbers Brad Gobright and Jim Reynolds, Honnold drafts fellow climbing legend Tommy Caldwell to establish a new mark that will stand the test of time. Honnold pushes for perfection while Caldwell, a family man, wrestles with the risk amid a series of accidents on the wall that lay bare the consequences of any mistake.
UNITED STATES OF JOE’S: In rural Utah, a valley of world-class bouldering is nestled among a conservative community of Mormons, cowboys and coal miners. When a ragged band of punk rock climbers shows up, the two cultures inevitably clash. After years of antagonism, a group of climbers work with locals to build a more harmonious future. But in this divided era, is that even possible?
