Looking forward to Reel Rock 2016
This year, audiences will embark on an arctic big wall expedition, witness the world’s best young climbers setting new standards, set off on a multi-year journey to scale the world’s hardest alpine crack – and much more.
Here’s a closer look at a selection of some of the films:
Septuagenarian Scottish Captain Reverend Bob Shepton invites a wild bunch of climbers on to his boat for a major mission: To sail from Greenland to Baffin Island in search of virgin walls to climb. On board the Dodo’s Delight (a 10m sailboat) the team measures up with arctic ice, polar bears and ferocious storms, in search of the holy grail: To find unclimbed big walls and musical enlightenment, propelling the group to ultimate all-new heights.
Brette Harrington journeys from her hometown granite in Squamish to the big wall proving ground of Yosemite’s El Capitan and on to a landmark climb in Patagonia. Here Harrington made history by becoming the first person to free solo (climb without a rope) an epic 2,500ft route called Chiaro di Luna. In doing so she
also became the first woman to free-solo a tower in the Fitz Roy massif.
