REEL ROCK 13 TOUR FILMS
QUEEN MAUD LAND
Six elite climbers, one of the world’s last climbing frontiers. On a wild expedition to Antarctica, Jimmy Chin and Conrad Anker tackle a new route on the 3,600-foot Ulvetanna? Savannah Cummins and Anna Pfaff summit the towering Holtanna? and Alex Honnold and Cedar Wright make a harrowing and hilarious blitz of 13 different spires spread across the ice field, including one pitch that Honnold calls “the scariest I have ever led.” Queen Maud Land, the name of this icy region, showcases the suffering and vision needed to climb at the bottom of the world.
AGE OF ONDRA
Late last year Adam Ondra established a benchmark for climbing: a 5.15d in Norway he dubbed Silence. On the heels of this ascent, we follow Adam from his home in the Czech Republic, across Europe to North America, as he innovates new training methods, establishes upper echelon first ascents, and attempts to be the first person to send 5.15 on the first try.
THE VALLEY OF THE MOON
Wadi Rum, known as the Valley of the Moon, is a vast landscape of sandstone walls in the Jordan desert. Hoping to lure international climbers, two Israelis team up with a local Bedouin guide to establish an 1,800ft route, eventually recruiting American climber Madaleine Sorkin to help achieve their dream. The Valley of the Moon explores the importance of climbing as a way to cross cultural barriers, build friendship and chase adventure in one of the most breath-taking regions on earth.
UP TO SPEED
When climbing was announced as part of the 2020 Olympics, it was a monumental occasion for the sport. But many climbers were shocked to learn that one of three combined events required to compete for a medal is… speed climbing.
Reel Rock correspondent Zachary Barr looks into this seldom practised subdiscipline of the sport, and the role it will play in shaping climbing's future. Barr's journey from the US to France (the birthplace of modern speed climbing) to South Asia culminates at an international competition in Moscow, where speed demons race up a 15-meter wall in under six seconds.
