Okay adrenaline junkies, this is your week to get your fix via the big-screen with a series of films and events featuring thrill-seekers like yourself getting the most out of life through their adventures.
Through October 7th (Monday) you can take in some high adventures films that have come out of the 2013 Banff Radical Reels film festival and elsewhere. The showings are possible through the efforts of All Out Events and SLO Op Climbing owners Kristin and Yishai Horowitz.
The showings come just as we are all starting to wrap up summer adventures and our summer states of mind, and start thinking about winter. "It's a perfect time to get people excited for what's out there," said Kristin, "And we're excited to engage locals and visitors alike doing what we do best - getting them out on adventures."
The fun kicked off Monday, September 30th with a screening of the 2013 Banff Radical Reels films. "We've been trying to bring the full film festival here, but no luck yet," said Kristin. "This is a selection of the more high adventure films that come out of the internationally famous film festival in Canada."
The rest of the weeks activities include a slide-show at the climbing gym by world famous surf photographer and SLO local Chris Burkard, an all-abilities public bouldering competition at SLO Op Climbing, an Access Fund Adopt-a-Crag clean up at Bishop Peak, and two more nights of film screenings.
Sunday night features a double header: Reveal the Path - the story of an endurance mountain biker and friends traveling the world on bike and Gold Rush Mother Lode 2012, a look into the 4-day adventure race that All Out Events helps to produce. Monday evening closes out the week with the Reel Rock Tour - selections of the best climbing films produced in 2013, also featuring a raffle for participants.
"SLO Op Climbing has a duty as a non-profit to benefit the local climbing community," said Kristin, "And thanks to the supporters of our club, we have the opportunity to reach out to our fellow adventurers by bringing these activities to the central coast this fall." The event benefits SLO OP Climbing, and aims to become an annual event.
