The beauty of Reel Rock is in its variety and quality. The tour brings audiences a collection of the top climbing and adventure films from the past year. Each video is long enough to tell a complete story, but short enough that one’s attention never waivers. In two hours, viewers travel around the world, watching athletes push the limits of every genre of our sport.
But who can wait for Reel Rock 12?
