There will be 3 brand new films on show:

In The High Road, the powerful and bold Nina Williams tests herself on some of the highest, most difficult boulder problems ever climbed. In United States of Joe’s climbers collide with a conservative coal mining community in rural Utah, to surprising results. In The Nose Speed Record, legends Tommy Caldwell and Alex Honnold battle Yosemite dirtbags Jim Reynolds and Brad Gobright in a high stakes race for greatness.

 

 

The High Road 20 min

While the world’s best boulderers push standards close to the ground, Nina Williams’ sights are set higher. She is among the only women who climb elite-level problems that are 30, 40, even 50 feet tall — with no rope. In this profile of an emerging star athlete, Nina Williams flexes her guns and tests her nerves well into the no-fall zone.

 

The Nose Speed Record 55 min

For decades, an elite handful of climbers have competed for the coveted speed record on the 3,000-foot Nose of El Capitan, risking big falls to shave mere seconds off the fastest time. When a record held by superstar Alex Honnold is broken by little-known climbers Brad Gobright and Jim Reynolds, Honnold drafts fellow climbing legend Tommy Caldwell to establish a new mark that will stand the test of time. Honnold pushes for perfection while Caldwell, a family man, wrestles with the risk amid a series of accidents on the wall that lay bare the consequences of any mistake.

 

United States of Joe’s 20 min

In rural Utah, a valley of world-class bouldering is nestled among a conservative community of Mormons, cowboys and coal miners. When a ragged band of punk rock climbers shows up, the two cultures inevitably clash. After years of antagonism, a group of climbers work with locals to build a more harmonious future. But in this divided era, is that even possible?

16 Nov 2019 17 Nov 2019 Unit E Gym Closure (BMC Profiling)

BMC_RGB

 

We're hosting a GB Development Squad Profiling Weekend for the BMC on Saturday 16th & Sunday 17th November.

Unit E Gym Closure 10am to 6pm

The Unit E Gym will be closed to our customers from 10am to 6pm on both days.  The training area in the main centre will be open as usual all weekend.

We always try to minimise the effect of external events on our customers, so it was agreed that the Development Squad would hold its 2 profiling weekends in Sheffield following the selection event on the 9th & 10th November in different climbing walls in Sheffield.  Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
