/ LANCASTER/RHEGED - REEL ROCK - 19 & 20 October
The REEL ROCK Tour continues its tour across the UK with the 11th annual instalment of the Reel Rock climbing film series! The Tour heads to Lancaster (Wednesday) and Rheged (Thursday) this week with five new films that deliver edge-of-your-seat action, globe-trotting exploration, big laughs and true inspiration.

Meet two of the new faces of climbing: 15-year-old Ashima Shiraishi and 16-year-old Kai Lightner are pioneers of the next generation, already taking the sport to the next level. A trip to Norway puts their skills to the test, and Ashima attempts to make history on a V15 boulder in Japan.
BOYS IN THE BUGS
Will Stanhope and Matt Segal are elite-level crack climbers and world-class goofballs. Laugh along as they go for broke on an epic four-year battle to climb a forbidding 5.14 finger crack high in the Canadian alpine wilderness of the Bugaboos.
Follow rising talent Brette Harrington on a global journey from her hometown granite in Squamish to the big wall proving ground of Yosemite’s El Capitan and onto a landmark free solo in Patagonia.
Lone wolf Mike Libecki travels to the most remote corners of the globe to find unclimbed walls and establish first ascents. When Mike becomes a father, he has a new challenge: to reconcile his life of adventure with the demands of parenthood, but he may also gain a new partner for his expeditions.
Pack your penny whistle and batten down the hatches for a madcap sailing adventure in the Arctic Circle aboard the good ship Dodo’s Delight. Join Sean Villanueva O'Driscoll, Ben Ditto, and brothers Nico and Oliver Favresse for a rollicking musical journey across open seas and up unclimbed big walls.
