9th Annual 5Point Film Festival – Adventure & Inspiration

My favorite weekend of the year is happening in three days, the annual 5Point Film Festival! I’ve written about it many times, now in it’s 9th year, it’s always an incredibly inspiring event, filled with amazing stories from all over the world. It’s also wonderful to see friends from all over as the tribe gathers in our little town to celebrate life and all the adventures it brings.

Main Elk – sunny walls and fun climbs from 5.7 to 5.13.

Narrows – hit the walls that get morning sun and then when it gets too chilly cruise back to town for the festival.

Redstein – if you are looking for something different, check out this cliff. With sun until early afternoon, conditions should be prime.

Frying Pan – if you have most of the day, head up to this sunny cliff for a great mix of sport and trad lines.
