    Join us June 29th at 7:30pm as we bust out our brand new giant movie screen for Andrew Kornylak’s 2011 climbing film, “A Fine Line”.

    2011 rock climbing film, A Fine Line, from directors Andrew Kornylak and Josh Fowler, follows one season with some of the world’s most visionary climbers as they pursue the best – and worst – rock in America, from Alpine Colorado to remote Idaho and the Deep South. Featuring Jimmy Webb, Brion Voges, Dave Graham, Daniel Woods, Peter Beal, and other top climbers, A Fine Line is a beautiful visual meditation on the bouldering lifestyle.

    You can check out the trailer on Kornylak’s Vimeo channel: Click Here to View Trailer
