Boulder: Premiere of climbing movie “Uncharted Lines” at the Boulder Theater. Every climbing reward comes at the cost of a potential risk, but when you are a climbing pioneer, driven by the unknown and unexpected, you are willing to risk whatever it takes for the chance to find the perfect first ascent. This untouched line is the ultimate prize for professional climbers Paul Robinson, Jimmy Webb, Daniel Woods and Chris Sharma – four of the best climbers in the world who have each dedicated their lives to the sport of rock climbing. Told through five separate stories, Paul Robinson is the common thread that links each story together as he travels from Russia, to the southeastern United States, to Spain, to Zimbabwe, and finally back home to the Rocky Mountains, interacting with these three athletes along the way.
Denver: Mappy Hour at Denver Beer Co. – Matt Doyle (@FATMAP) will be hosting a roundtable about digital tools to use in the snow. From phone apps to watches to beacons and more! What inspires you to plan outdoor adventures? Which types of technology do you use while skiing? Which apps are the most popular? What kind of technology do you hope to see in the future?
