REEL ROCK Film Tour 2016 - North Summit Climbing Gym

Reel Rock Film Tour 2011

$19.88


Yay! You're now following reel rock tour in your .

The first real chapter is Obe & Ashima. This made me think. A lot. I have a five year old and a two year old. They are both exhibiting signs that they might be reasonably good climbers. As parents do we try to channel their 'talents' or do we let them develop naturally? Ashima is a 9 year old Japanese American with devoted parents who don't climb. Three years ago she started climbing and has developed astoundingly quickly thanks in large part to her personal coach Obe Carrion. You may remember Obe from the late 90s. He was at the leading edge of the bouldering revolution, inspiring the likes of Chris Sharma with his strength and passion (his antics on topping out on a boulder problem on some archive footage are quite impressive!). The film is a well crafted portrait of the pair, with occasional references to the parents. I found myself genuinely interested in Obe and his story which is saying something given the number of climbers' biographies and profiles I've read over the years. There's plenty of action, a few tears (and not just from 9 year old Ashima, who despite her iron mentality does have the odd wobble) and a few really inspiring, uplifting moments. It's comparable to 'The Hardest Moves' – a chapter on last year's Reel Rock Tour which was also produced by the Lowell brothers Josh and Brett.

During September and October, the third annual Reel Rock Film Tour (2008) will be thrilling crowds in more than 80 cities around the world with the best climbing and outdoor adventure films of the year.
