Ice Climbing || Arc'teryx - Commit: Cold Focus

Ice Climbing || Arc'teryx - Commit: Cold Focus

"With the limited beta we'd been given, we had set our eyes on a very specific objective. Located beside the Kafjord Suspension bridge lies a huge waterfall that attracts big crowds in the summer months. With the right conditions, it can freeze over in the winter, producing a massive icefall over 120 meters tall, pocketed with multiple ice caverns; potentially epic conditions for ice climbing. The catch: it was a 2.5 hour hike in from the nearest road; a 5 hour round trip. With the camera gear, ropes, climbing and film equipment we were carrying, this was turning into a big commitment for something that's "never the same" as Luka put it. Despite my skepticism about what we might find we didn't have many options, so on we went, into the unknown."

Sender Films || Reel Rock 10

Five new and inspiring films from climbing's renowned REEL ROCK Film Tour. From big walls to highballs, REEL ROCK 10 follows the best athletes on an action-packed journey from South Africa to Arkansas to witness the biggest events in the vertical realm.

A Line Across The Sky

The Fitz Roy Traverse is one of the most sought after achievements in modern alpinism: a gnarly journey across seven jagged summits and 13,000 vertical feet of climbing. Who knew it could be so much fun? Join Tommy Caldwell and Alex Honnold on the inspiring, and at times hilarious, quest that earned the Piolet d'Or.

Dean Potter Tribute

Dean Potter was the most iconic vertical adventurer of a generation. He has been an integral part of the REEL ROCK family since year one, starring in such classics as First Ascent, Fly Or Die, Race For The Nose, and Valley Uprising. Following his tragic death in May of 2015, REEL ROCK 10 includes this stirring tribute to our friend and collaborator.

High And Mighty

High ball bouldering, where a fall could lead to a serious injury, is not for the faint of heart. Add to the equation a level of difficulty at climbing's cutting edge, and things can get downright out of control. Follow Daniel Woods' epic battle to conquer fear and climb the high ball test-piece, The Process.

Showdown At Horseshoe Hell

24 Hours Of Horseshoe Hell is the wildest event in the climbing world: a mash-up of ultramarathon and Burning Man where elite climbers and gumbies alike go for broke in a sun up-to-sun up orgy of lactic acid and beer. But all fun aside, the competition is real: Can the team of Nik Berry and Mason Earle stand up against the all-powerful Alex Honnold?

Dawn Wall Exclusive

A first look at Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson's epic final push to free climb the Dawn Wall. It marked the greatest climbing achievement of a generation and captured the world's imagination.

Special Features

Extended climbing footage, hilarious outtakes, and deleted scenes.

Natalie Berry || Transition (Hot Aches Productions)

Natalie Berry || Transition (Hot Aches Productions)

Natalie Berry is one of the UK's leading female sport and competition climbers. After discovering climbing by chance at the age of 8, she went on to compete with the GB Climbing Team all over the world and has numerous podium places in both lead climbing and bouldering.

As well as her success as a competition climber, Natalie is also one of the top female sport climbers in Britain, being one of only a handful of British women to have climbed the grade of 8b.

Despite having lived in Scotland all her life, home to some of the best traditional and winter climbing in the world, she has yet to venture into the mountains so close to home.

Now wishing to further her experiences Natalie plans to take up traditional climbing, winter mountaineering and skiing. Acting as mentor and climbing partner through this process is Scottish all round climber Dave Macleod.

‘Transition’ follows Natalie over the course of a year as she takes her first exploratory steps into a new world, closely following the highs and lows of the pursuit of a life in the mountains

Stefan Glowacz || Climbing 7 Giants in Siberia

Stefan Glowacz || Climbing 7 Giants in Siberia

Far off in the tundra lies one of climbing's most unique challenges. Stefan Glowacz trudges across the frozen Russian outback in search of a something big – 7 Giants, to be exact. The unique rock and ice formations are considered one of the seven wonders of Russia. The recently-released clip above gives an inside look into what it took to climb the Giants. Due to their remote location in Siberia, they are relatively untouched by tourism – and the peaks, while not incredibly high, were unclimbed until Glowacz turned up. It was an extreme challenge for the experienced rock and ice climber. Of course, it's only possible to climb them after going through quite an adventure to get there...

Antarctic Mountaineering | Kabatic - Unclimbed Peak

Antarctic Mountaineering | Kabatic - Unclimbed Peak

When explorers Mike Libecki, Freddie Wilkinson, Cory Richards and Keith Ladzinski set out for the Wohlthat Mountain Range of Antarctica on a National Geographic grant to climb and explore this nearly uncharted part of the world, they had no idea what they were getting themselves into. It's nearly impossible to prepare for a place this uninhabitable, almost as impossible as the chance of being rescued if anything goes wrong. Inland Antarctica is hailed as the largest desert in the world, a nearly lifeless landscape ravished by Katabatic winds that scour the landscape at over 100 mph. The team set out on a first ascent mission to climb unnamed peaks and ended up having an adventure they will never forget. - Epic TV

Andy Parkin || Beyond Good and Evil

Andy Parkin || Beyond Good and Evil

"In the house of pain, we were chained together searching for our truth, beyond good and evil". This quote from Nietzsche inspired Andy Parkin and Mark Twight, the openers of this mixed climbing route, that became a reference. Listed extremely difficult, North oriented, this route was appealing for François Damilano and François Marsigny, the repeaters of the route. Last winter, it was time for the up-and-coming generation, represented by Marion Poitevin and Sébastien Ratel to meet the challenge. Three duos, three experiences, three encounters… echoing the Trilogy alpine series

Race for the Nose

Welcome to the wildest competition known to man -- the speed record on the Nose route of El Capitan. For 50 years, the best climbers in the world have been one-upping each other on this massive granite monolith in Yosemite National Park, racing up 3,000 feet of vertical rock in under three hours, and risking life and limb to shave mere seconds off the record time. We follow Dean Potter and Sean Leary on their attempt to break this legendary record on the classic route.

Sketch Andy

American climbing dirtbag Andy Lewis is taking the discipline of slacklining into the future as he solos the worlds longest high-lines and masters the hardest aerial tricks, all the while pushing his equipment to the limit. As Andy goes higher, harder and faster with climbing, slack and BASE, we all have to wonder how far he can go before it’s one step over the line.

Origins: Obe & Ashima

There's a nine year old girl from New York City taking the bouldering world by storm, and her name is Ashima Shiraishi. Under the tutelage of her passionate coach, Obe Carrion, this tiny master is crushing competitions and raising the bar for climbing's youth. Obe brings her to bouldering's proving ground, Hueco Tanks, Texas, where he had his own big breakthrough 13 years earlier, and Ashima rips the place apart.

Ice Revolution

At British Columbia's spectacular Helmcken Falls, a revolution is taking place, led by Canadian maniac Will Gadd. After 30 years of ice climbing, Gadd has finally realized his dream of climbing radically overhanging, heinously difficult ice. Gadd and Tim Emmett dodge exploding 30 foot icicle bombs and send the hardest pure ice climb in the world, but they swear it's just the first step in a whole new direction for the sport.

Project Dawn Wall

Tommy Caldwell is the master of big wall free climbing. He's devoted the last decade of his life to opening free routes on Yosemite's El Capitan, rewriting climbing history in the process. Now he's three seasons deep into his ultimate project - the seemingly impossible Dawn Wall. Joined by bouldering specialist Kevin Jorgeson, Tommy makes his first big ground-up push, pulling pitch after pitch of 5.14 first ascents before an epic storm shuts the team down until next year…
