Shaker Rocks is excited to host a FREE screening of Reel Rock 14 on Friday, November 8th.
What is Reel Rock?
“…Reel Rock has grown into the premiere global platform for award-winning climbing films that weave bold action, humor, heart, and soul into larger-than-life human stories for a wide audience, from the core climber to the armchair mountaineer.”
Doors open at 6 PM, film starts at 6:30 PM.
Reel Rock 14 will be shown in the Shaker Rocks facility. Tickets are FREE for the film. Prior to the start of the film, we will have a representative from the Ohio Climbers Coalition give a talk about the importance of the OCC in the Ohio climbing community. We will be raffling off prizes as well.
Gym is open until 11 PM.
After the film, we’ll be having a party at Shaker Rocks. Tickets are $5 for members and $15 for non-members. The price of a ticket includes climbing (gear included), food, and more! All proceeds will go to The Access Fund.
The High Road
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
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
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 pushed 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.
