Climb On is a one-night screening of climbing inspired, short films, under the stars in Mission Plaza, downtown San Luis Obispo. We will also have food and drink available from some of your favorite local SLO spots.
We’re stoked to be showcasing the short film, Climbing out of Disaster, by our friends at Encompass Films. The film follows a story of the Puerto Rican climbing community springing into action when Hurricane Maria struck, using their strength and skills to climb felled trees to clear roadways and to boulder buildings to retrieve personal items trapped by the storm’s wreckage.
The film’s star Bryant Huffman, and filmmakers will be joining us in SLO. We will be raising money for the climbing gym he just opened in San Juan, El Bloque. The gym is a monument to resiliency, rebuild and community in Puerto Rico.
We will be hosting other climber and filmmaker guests with conversations about getting outside, climbing culture, and discussions on climate change.
