Reel Rock 13
Mark your calendars for Friday, November 16 for REEL ROCK 13 at ONSIGHT ROCK GYM!
Reel Rock 13 films include:
Age of Ondra
Adam Ondra, the 25-year-old Czech crusher, is exploring a new realm of human potential in climbing. Late last year, he established a benchmark for the sport; a 5.15d in Norway he dubbed Silence (as in, drop the mic). On the heels of this ascent, we follow Adam from his home in Czech Republic, across Europe to North America, as he innovates new training methods, establishes upper echelon routes, and attempts to climb a 5.15 on his first try.
, QUEEN MAUD LAND
A dream team of six elite climbers mount an expedition to one of the world's last great climbing frontiers: the remote frozen towers of Antarctica. Jimmy Chin and Conrad Anker tackle a new route on the 3,600-foot Ulvetanna; Savannah Cummins and Anna Pfaff summit Holtanna; and Alex Honnold and Cedar Wright make a harrowing and hilarious blitz of 13 different spires spread across the ice field, including one pitch that Honnold calls "the scariest I have ever led." Queen Maud Land, the name of this icy region, showcases a stunning rarely-visited wilderness, and the suffering and vision needed to climb at the bottom of the world.
, THE VALLEY OF THE MOON
Wadi Rum, known as the Valley of the Moon, is a vast landscape of sandstone walls in the desert of Jordan. Hoping to lure international climbers, two Israelis team up with a local Bedouin guide to establish an 1,800-foot route, eventually recruiting American climber Madaleine Sorkin to help achieve their dream. The Valley of the Moon explores the importance of climbing as a way to cross cultural barriers, build friendship and chase adventure in one of the most breathtaking regions on earth
UP TO SPEED
When climbing was announced as part of the 2020 Olympics, it was a monumental occasion for the sport. But many climbers were shocked to learn that one of three combined events required to compete for a medal is...speed climbing. REEL ROCK correspondent Zachary Barr looks into this little-known and seldom practiced sub-discipline of the sport, and the role it will play in shaping climbing's future. Barr's journey from U.S. to France (the birthplace of modern speed climbing) to South Asia (it's actually huge there) culminates at an international competition in Moscow, where speed demons race up a 15-meter wall in less than six second
We are excited to once again partner with REI Knoxville to co-host this year's screening. Come early and hang out at our pre-show party featuring games, raffles, a food truck, and beer by Lilly Pad Hopyard and Brewery, AKA Del and Marte's! 100% of all Lilly Pad beer and raffle ticket donations will be donated to East Tennessee Climbers Coalition and Southeastern Climbers Coalition. These organizations work hard to protect climbing crags in our area!
This event is BYOS – Bring Your Own Seat. Get creative and bring your pillows, blankets, folding camp chairs (i.e. crazy creeks), hammocks or portaledges to hang low on the wall, crash pads, and similar seating ideas. Make sure your chair doesn’t have narrow feet – they will injure our mats. We will have a few seats courtesy of REI and PLENTY of space for your seat of choice!
