Around this time each year you might notice a change in your climber friends. They may be rearranging their climbing rack for the 11th time this week, or walking around the house with climbing chalk smeared on their faces like war paint. Some may even be caught practicing their grunts, trying to decide between a manly Sharma grunt or an animal like Ondra growl.

What has brought this change over your otherwise mostly ‘normal’ climber friends? Reel Rock 8! Once a year this magically climbtastic film series comes through Portland raining down ‘epicness’ and ‘stoke’ on all those who are lucky enough to claim a seat at the Bagdad.

Since 2006, Reel Rock has been bringing the best of climbing and outdoor adventure films to audiences around the country. The Mountain Shop loves Reel Rock, not only because we get as excited as you do by the gnar, shredding, and sensing, but because Reel Rock helps raise over $20,000 annually for non-profits. We like this. In fact, we love it!

At the show we will be entering people in a raffle to win a Yakima Skybox Pro Silver ($649 value)! We are also giving away a copy of Last Child in the Woods! Come say hi for your chance to win BIG!

The Reel Rock is coming to Portland this week! Thursday (9/19) and Friday (9/20) at the Bagdad Theater. Doors open at 5:30pm and the show starts at 7pm. Tickets are $17.

Here’s the trailer to drool over:

Don’t forget to practice your Ondra grunts and we’ll see you there!
