Reel Rock Tour in Pasadena on Feb 2 2011

Postby lavaka » Tue Dec 21, 2010 4:46 pm

We're bringing the Reel Rock Tour to Pasadena in early February! The Tour is made up of 6 climbing films, covering standard rock climbing to ice climbing and BASE.

Much more than just watching some films, this event is a chance to meet other local climbers. We are working to get sponsors for a raffle, and we'll have local S & R setup tables before the show. We expect between 200 and 300 people.

More information at our website: http://alpine.caltech.edu/Reel_Rock. Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door. The show starts at 7:30 PM and the location is Ramo Auditorium on the Caltech campus in Pasadena.

This is in addition to the Banff FIlm Festival that we screen every March. We will screen this on March 29, 2011 (same location as Reel Rock). More info on Banff: http://alpine.caltech.edu/Banff

The films that will be shown:
  • First Round First Minute. Since Chris Sharma moved to the sport climbing mecca of Catalunya, Spain, he's opened dozens of routes that are redefining high-end climbing. First Round First Minute gives an update on Sharma's latest 5.15 first ascents, and tells the story of his epic battle with his latest ongoing project.
  • The Hardest Moves. Daniel Woods and Paul Robinson compete to climb the hardest boulders ever scaled. An inside look at what it takes to push the difficulty envelope of this intense sport.
  • Origins: The Hulk. Peter Croft and Lisa Rands attempt a wild free ascent on the Incredible Hulk Wall in the Sierras -- arguably America's best (and least filmed) alpine rock wall. Croft, the most legendary of California's crack masters mentors the renowned boulderer Rands as she explores into alpine traditional climbing terrain.
  • Down and Out, and Under. A once-in-a-lifetime adventure expedition for first ascents in Australia and on the wild sea cliffs of outer Tasmania.
  • Fly or Die. Dean Potter continues his extreme vertical exploration, opening new freeBASE climbs, along with highline and wingsuit jumps in some of the most mind-blowing vertical footage ever captured
  • The Swiss Machine. Ueli Steck may be the greatest speed alpinist the world has ever seen. In this film he tells the stories of his record-breaking ascents in the Alps, accompanied by stunning aerial footage of him racing up 8,000 foot alpine faces. Ueli joins Alex Honnold in Yosemite to attempt speed records there. His ultimate goal: take his one-man alpine speed game to the largest, highest walls in the world.

Here's another plug for this event. It'd be great to see some local SP faces at this if you haven't already seen Reel Rock... as additional incentive it looks like we will have a signed poster from Peter Croft (thanks to fossana!) and stuff from Evolv to raffle out.

Excellent show...thanks CalTech Alpine Club and all the other co-sponsors. Looked like a full house at the Ramo Auditorium. Also, it was really nice to meet a bunch of ol' buddies there last night 8)

Bonus, the 2-minute short videos; Toprope Tough Guys and Rock P0rn video were pretty funny…check this link :lol: http://www.reelrocktour.com/contest/
