Join us for the Spring 2017 Black Diamond Tour!
The BD Tour consist of several short films about BD athletes doing amazing things. Here is a synopsis of the films:
Carlo Traversi – Triple 14 -
In October of 2016, BD Athlete Carlo Traversi succeeded on a unique climbing linkup. He climbed a V14 Boulder problem (Jade), a 5.14 sport route (Sarchasm) and a route on the 14,000 foot Longs Peak (Pervertical Sanctuary, 5.11 on the Diamond) all in a single day, walking between routes. There are very few places in the world where a climber can find such unique, high quality climbing challenges like this so close together, and few climbers who climb at this level across a variety of disciplines. This is a short film about Carlo’s vision, this unique set of challenges, and determination it took to succeed.
A team of BD athletes (Sam Elias, Hazel Findlay, Brittany Griffith, and Sonnie Trotter) travel to Rio to work with kids from the Rocinha favela to teach life skills through climbing. This is a story of transformation and new perspectives gained through friendship, mentoring, and climbing.
Daila Ojeda- Multi-Pitch climbing in Montserrat, Spain -
BD Athlete Daila Ojeda steps out of her comfort zone and attempts a hard multi-pitch route in Montserrat, Spain. Up until now she's focused on single pitch sport climbing, so this is a new experience for her and an opportunity to push her limits in a new way. This is a beautiful short film set in the stunning landscape of Catalunya, Spain near Barcelona.
The show will be at Wilderness Exchange in Denver and will start at 8PM. There will also be FREE beer provided by Upslope Brewing Company and a raffle with tons of great prizes from Black Diamond. All of the proceeds from the raffle will go to the Front Range Climbing Stewards, who helps build trails and maintain climbing areas all over the Front Range. Front Range Climbing Stewards is a part of the Boulder Climbing Community.
