This is dated today and I don't see it posted here. If the first person who sees it reports back - aahh hell lets just all go see it. Lynn Hill and Nancy Feagin climbing in Indian Creek, on IMAX's extra BIG screen, shit its gotta be good.

Bill

Thanks for the info, Bill.

Now I've just got to figure out where the nearest IMAX joint is that's showing this.

I'm guessing somewhere in Pennsylvania.... :roll:

k.

I saw it a year or so ago. It's pretty good, but the climbing is a very small portion of it. I liked they show them on a desert wide crack instead of a flashy dyno-move on an overhanging sport climb with out a rope sort of thing that "Extreme" movies usually try to sell.

Wallress: this has been out a year? I really must be living in a cave. With the door shut. My head under the blankets. :oops: :oops: :oops:

My face is red now.

Pink anyway.....

Would you recommend the flick?

No need to blush...It probably doesn't come out all places at the same time anyway. I live in SF, so we probably got it early. Anyway, one of my pet-peeves is when people try to "market" climbing as an X-treme sport. I guess I just don't like the mentality of doing things simply to be X-treme. Although this movie showed a lot of X-treme persuits, it was done in typical dryish IMAX documentary style and ended up being more informative and beautiful than andreniline-rush inspiring. As I said the climbing was a nice crack up a desert tower, with some nice shots of carefully placed hand stacks. It was more about why the gals enjoyed doing it than T&A or danger, which I might easily have expected the movie maker to try to portray instead.

My favorite part of the movie in the end wasn't the climbing...it was the big wave surfing. That might say more about my fascination with surf movies than it does about the film itself though. Hypocritically, it's probably the most 'X-treme' footage in the show.
