The Banff Tour, presented by Arc'teryx, features a brand new selection of the best climbing and adventure films from some of the world's best adventure filmmakers, all in stunning HD on the big screen. Come and see why more than 300,000 people across the globe gather at their local screening each year to catch up with friends and get psyched for adventures in the year ahead.
As well as seeing amazing films, you can also win some GREAT PRIZES FROM ARC'TERYX (GoreTex Jacket), PATAGONIA, COTSWOLD OUTDOOR, KEEN, BLACK DIAMOND and SEA TO SUMMIT. There is also a free CLIF BAR for everyone in the audience.
REEL ROCK: HONNOLD 3.0 - Alex Honnold has become known as the boldest solo climber of his generation. In this dangerous game, how does he balance pure ambition and self-preservation? Honnold wrestles with this question in preparation for his biggest adventure yet - the Yosemite Triple. He sets out to climb Mt Watkins, El Capitan and Half Dome in Yosemite National Park, 95% of it without ropes - all within a 24 hour period!
REEL ROCK: WIDE BOYZ - American "off-width" crack climbing has spawned a counter-culture of rough and tumble characters who aren't afraid to bleed their way up a route. Two British lads, Tom Randall and Pete Whittaker, cross the Atlantic to test themselves on some of the gnarliest wide cracks in the US, including the first ascent of the world's hardest off-width known as Century Crack.
As well as the above films, there will be a selection of other award-winning films featuring an epic expedition to the South Pole, mountain biking, skiing and whitewater kayaking.
