Reel Rock 2015 Overview


If you haven't secured your tickets for one of the three shows Mountain Equipment is putting on as part of the Reel Rock Film Tour then you'd better get cracking! Not long now until things get kicked off at the Chuavel Cinema in Paddington (30.9.15) followed by Roseville (21.10.15) and then new to Mountain Equipment's leg of the tour, Mt Vic Flicks in the Blue Mountains (4.11.15). Going back to its usual format of having multiple short films, this year's tour has something to get any climber's forearms tingling with excitement. Here's a brief overview of the night -  

A Line Across the Sky

35 mins
The Fitz Roy traverse is one of the most sought after achievements in modern alpinism: a gnarly journey across seven jagged summits and 13,000 vertical feet of climbing. Who knew it could be so much fun? Join Tommy Caldwell and Alex Honnold on the inspiring -- and at times hilarious -- quest that earned the Piolet d’Or.  

Dean Potter Tribute

6 mins
Dean Potter was the most iconic vertical adventurer of a generation. He has been an integral part of the REEL ROCK family since year one, starring in such classics as First Ascent, Fly or Die, Race for the Nose and Valley Uprising. Following his tragic death in May, the tour will include a stirring tribute to our friend and collaborator.  

Dawn Wall: First Look

15 mins
Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson’s epic final push to free climb the Dawn Wall was a truly historic feat. It marked the greatest climbing achievement of a generation and captured the world’s imagination. As our team works on a major feature film about the event slated for next year, REEL ROCK 10 will include an exclusive first look at the drama playing out at the crux of the route.  

Showdown at Horseshoe Hell

20 mins
24 hours of Horseshoe Hell (24HHH) is the wildest event in the climbing world; a mash-up of ultramarathon and Burning Man where elite climbers and gumbies alike go for broke in a sun up-to-sun up orgy of lactic acid and beer. But all fun aside, the competition is real: Can the team of Nic Berry and Mason Earle stand up against the all-powerful Alex Honnold?  

High and Mighty

20 mins
High ball bouldering -- where a fall could lead to serious injury -- is not for the faint of heart. Add to the equation a level of difficulty at climbing’s cutting edge, and things can get downright out of control. Follow Daniel Woods’ epic battle to conquer fear and climb the high ball test-piece The Process.
