Bring your picnic blankets and chill out to the grunts and groans of some of the best climbers in the world. We have bouldering, alpine and even trad climbing in Australia. Inspiring climbers include Potter, Rands, Honnald, Sharma, Steck and more in a series of movies shown in the fifth Reel Rock Festival 2010. Yes it is a free event. Yes you can bring grandma and the kids.
Thanks to the support of Morland Council we are bringing these movies back to the stage in a free outdoor cinema event at the Wilson Bouldering Wall, Wilson Avenue, Brunswick. The show starts at 8pm and runs for over an hour and a half.
