Reel Rock UK Tour - Ondra vs Sharma, Wideboyz And Anker

Following huge international success with an audience of more than 65,000 in 2011, the Reel Rock Film Tour is about to head out on its first UK wide tour. Premiering films from some of the world's best climbing film makers, this year's collection features climbing icons and alpine legends including Adam Ondra, Chris Sharma, the Wideboyz, Alex Honnold and Conrad Anker.

This year's line-up of films include:

The Dura Dura – Sharma has been the “king” of sport climbing for 15 years, and has created a mecca for hard routes near his home in Catalunya, Spain. Now, Ondra, has come to Sharma's home turf to take the torch as the two establish and then race to complete one of the world's hardest climbing route.

WideBoyz – Most of you will have read the stories and seen the pictures of Pete and Tom as they conquered Century Crack - one of the biggest, widest and nastiest cracks in America that was unclimbed until the two British lads travelled over to Utah and shocked the Americans. Now you can check out the film of the Wideboyz first ascent of Century Crack (a truly amazing feature) and some other gnarly cracks across the US.

Honnold 3.0 – Alex Honnold is one of the boldest solo climbers around at the moment and continues to play a delicate and dangerous game of balancing ambition with self-preservation. From first ascents, speed records and doing massive cliff faces – most of them free solo – Honnold sets out on his next challenge – three massive cliff faces in less than one day – 95% of it free solo.

The Shark's Fin - Legendary alpinist Conrad Anker has nurtured a 20 year obsession with the Shark's Fin, a spectacular unclimbed granite buttress on Mount Meru in India. In 2008 Anker and co endured a gruelling 18 day attempt but had to turn back just hundreds of feet from the summit, casualties of enduring stormy weather and starvation. Three years later, the trio makes the tough decision to return to this highly sought after route.
