This climbing and adventure film festival takes viewers to the edge with some breathtaking productions of climbing and bouldering experiences.

The Reel Rock Film Tour features amazing adventure films along with guest climbers and outdoor enthusiasts. Proceeds from the Reel Rock Film Tour are donated to local charities. The charities that will benefit from this Saturday’s event include the American Heart Association, the Southeastern Climbers Coalition and professional climber Lee Means.
