Reel Rock Film Tour Comes to UW
September 15, 2009 — The fourth annual Reel Rock Film Tour comes to the University of Wyoming College of Agriculture auditorium Friday, Sept. 18, at 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
Reel Rock is a 100-city tour featuring some of the world's top climbing and adventure films while providing giveaways, excitement and support to non-profit organizations.
This year's tour includes the world premiere of the film "Progression" by Big UP Productions, which tells the story of Chris Sharma's project of the world's hardest sport route and other climbs by Kevin Jorgeson and Tommy Caldwell. Also showing is a sneak peak of the series "First Ascent" by Sender Films and National Geographic, and the two winners of the Reel Rock filmmaking competition.
The event is sponsored by the UW Outdoor Program and Cross Country Connection. Attendees will be encouraged to donate to the Access Fund, which serves as an advocacy organization representing 1.6 million climbers and helps to protect climbing areas across the United States.
