Reel Rock 14

Mark your calendars for Friday, November 15 for REEL ROCK 14 at ONSIGHT ROCK GYM! 

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.  100% of all beer and raffle ticket donations + a portion of ticket proceeds 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!

The High Road (20 min)

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.

United States of Joe’s (20 min)

JOE'S_Pageant Girl Bouldering 2_BL.jpg

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?

The Nose Speed Record (55 min)


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.
