Reel Rock 14 delivers thrilling action, rollicking humor and full value inspiration. Tip-toe up terrifyingly tall boulders with highball master Nina Williams; dive into a culture clash that pits coal miners against climbers in Joe's Valley, Utah; feel the awe of the icy peaks in The Alpinist teaser; and in our feature presentation, storm the wild vertical race track of El Cap's Nose with Alex Honnold, Tommy Caldwell, Jim Reynolds, and the late, great Brad Gobright.
The High Road (17:35)
While the world’s best boulderers push standards close to the ground, Nina Williams’ sights are set higher. She is among the only women who climb elite-level problems that are 30, 40, even 50 feet tall -- with no rope. In this profile of an emerging star athlete, Nina Williams flexes her guns and tests her nerves well into the no-fall zone.
United States of Joe's (21:25)
In rural Utah, a valley of world-class bouldering is nestled among a conservative community of Mormons, cowboys and coal miners. When a ragged band of punk rock climbers shows up, the two cultures inevitably clash. After years of antagonism, a group of climbers work with locals to build a more harmonious future. But in this divided era, is that even possible?

The Nose Speed Record (1:02:23)
For decades, an elite handful of climbers have competed for the coveted speed record on the 3,000-foot Nose of El Capitan, risking big falls to shave mere seconds off the fastest time. When a record held by superstar Alex Honnold is broken by little-known climbers Brad Gobright and Jim Reynolds, Honnold drafts fellow climbing legend Tommy Caldwell to establish a new mark that will stand the test of time. Honnold pushes for perfection while Caldwell, a family man, wrestles with the risk amid a series of accidents on the wall that lay bare the consequences of any mistake.
