Climbing, mountaineering showcased at film festival

By From page A5 | October 10, 2012

Showcasing some of the most awe-inspiring feats in climbing and mountaineering, the Reel Rock Film Festival, hosted by the Rocknasium climbing gym, is a night of films that outdoor lovers won’t want to miss.

Doors open at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 12, at the Brunelle Performance Hall at Davis High School, 315 W. 14th St., and the show starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $13 each, and may be purchased at the Rocknasium, 720 Olive Drive, or by phone at 530-757-2902. A portion of ticket sales will go to the Climbing Resource Advocates for the Greater Sacramento region. CRAGS advocates for access to local climbing areas and keeps up good relations with land owners and government agencies.

This year’s films feature mountaineering in the Himalayas and death-defying ropeless ascents of some of America’s most evocative rock walls.

“Climbers and non-climbers alike will appreciate the passion, drive and dedication that keeps these athletes pushed to the limits, in the most physically and mentally demanding environments,” a news release said.

An introductory trailer can be seen at www.reelrocktour.com.
