    Climbing’s premier film festival, Reel Rock, is kicking off its 11th tour this fall. The party begins in Boulder on September 15 and is followed by 450 screenings in most corners of the world including places like Germany, Australia, and Antarctica. This year’s tour will highlight five films and feature rising superstars like Ashima Shiraishi and veterans of the rock like Mike Libecki. Here is a quick preview.
