Mark your calendars – on the evening of Sunday, April 5th, at 7PM we’ll be screening the new climbing film Pretty Strong in the gym!
From 5.13 big walls in Yosemite to 5.14 sport climbs in Mexico to V14 boulder problems in Colorado, Pretty Strong follows eight of the world’s strongest female climbers as they explore new climbing areas, send hard projects, and push the boundaries of the sport and themselves. Putting badass ladies front and center, this isn’t a film about gender imbalance, or the sexualization of women, or what it’s like to have your period at the crag. This is a film about some of the best climbers in the world—some you know, some you don’t—doing what they do best: crushing hard rock climbs. Your palms will sweat from the dizzying heights, your imagination will expand with the breathtaking landscapes, and your motivation will soar from the determination and try-hard of these strong women. The climbers featured include Nina Williams, Katie Lambert, Daila Ojeda, Hazel Findlay, and more.
**This is a bring your own chair or blanket (or beanbag?), picnic-style event. Feel free to call the gym at 585-441-9002 with questions or clarification!
Created by the all-women production team Never Not Collective, Pretty Strong is a climbing film about women, by women, and for everyone. After two years of filming and editing, Pretty Strong is here.
