About Reel Rock 2010

Every fall the REEL ROCK Film Tour brings the year's most exciting new climbing films to live audiences around the world. For 2010, the tour features six amazing short films, with stories from the cutting edge of alpine climbing, bouldering, sport climbing, and traditional climbing.

The Swiss Machine

Ueli Steck combines 5.14 rock skills with ice climbing, maniacal cardio training, and massive cojones to break speed records on the major peaks of the Alps. The Swiss Machine is a portrait of this fiercely driven character, and follows him to Yosemite's El Cap, where he meets up with Alex Honnold for a crash course in Big Wall speed, then back to the north face of The Eiger, where he obliterates the speed record, sprinting ropeless up thousands of feet of ice and rock in under three hours. Winner, Best Film, Sheffield Adventure Film Festival. Winner, Best Mountaineering Film, Kendal Mountain Film Festival.

The Hardest Moves

Daniel Woods and Paul Robinson have risen to the top of the bouldering game with repeats of the hardest problems in the US, Europe and South Africa, competition victories, and first ascents of high end new problems. The Hardest Moves is a look into this obsessive, competitive world, and follows Daniel and Paul's efforts to establish two of the hardest problems ever climbed — The Game (V15), and Lucid Dreaming (V15).

Origins: The Hulk

Lisa Rands is one of the best female boulderers of all time, and we've featured her bold and powerful exploits in several of our films over the years, but recently she's been inspired to branch out into big alpine free climbs. Peter Croft, the legendary climber who made his mark with groundbreaking solos in Yosemite in the 1980s, has taken Lisa under his wing. We joined them for a trip to The Incredible Hulk, a 1200 foot granite spire in the Sierra backcountry, to attempt Venturi Effect, a spectacular 5.12+ that Peter considers the best first ascent he's ever done. At 52, Peter is climbing as hard as ever, and his mountain-man spirit is truly inspiring. 

First Round First Minute

A glimpse of Chris Sharma's day-in day-out in Spain, featuring Era Vella (5.14d first ascent), Neanderthal (5.15b first ascent), and his notorious ongoing project, First Round First Minute. 

Fly or Die

Dean Potter's unending quest to combine his passions for solo climbing and BASE jumping. Featuring footage of his latest Free BASE conquest, the Alien Roof on Yosemite's Rostrum. 

Down and Out and Under

An expedition to the classic crags of Australia and the wild sea cliffs of Tasmania goes haywire, with hilarious consequences. Cedar Wright, Matt Segal, Heidi Wirtz and James Pearson endure epic after epic, and come out with their humor intact and an adventurous first ascent to their credit. 

DVD Extras

In addition to the six featured films, the REEL ROCK 2010 DVD also features a ton of bonus content, including: •

Grand Canyon Walls: A rafting expedition through the Grand Canyon with Tommy Caldwell and Beth Rodden, exploring the canyon for wild first ascents. Originally featured in the 2008 Tour, this 12 minute film has never been released on DVD. •

Vail World Cup: A deleted scene from The Hardest Moves, this short follows Daniel Woods and Paul Robinson as they prepare for and compete in the 2010 World Cup Bouldering Competition in Vail, CO. •

Separate Reality: A deleted scene from The Swiss Machine, following Alex Honnold and Ueli Steck on their climbs of Yosemite's classic roof crack, Separate Reality. •

Plus hilarious REEL ROCK Filmmaking Competition Winners, and more.
