Our Judges say:
Starts out like your average climbing retrospective and turns into something completely unexpected, surprising, and uplifting!
Evolves from being a magnificent display of mid-90s bouldering machismo to an entertaining depiction of culture clash between climbers and cowboys. Turns into a wonderful story of how adventure can lead to communities coming together. Lots of interesting class politics. Highly entertaining, you are guaranteed to laugh out loud several times.
Paul Hodgson Music Judge
In rural Utah, a valley of world-class bouldering is nestled among a conservative community of Mormons, cowboys and coal miners. When a ragged band of punk rock climbers shows up, the two cultures inevitably clash. After years of antagonism, a group of climbers work with locals to build a more harmonious future. But in this divided era, is that even possible?
