Recap: Brave New Wild Movie Night

We had a great showing last month for our screening of the film Brave New Wild. Thanks to those that could join us on the Facebook event page for some lively chatter. Brave New Wild is an offbeat chronicle of America’s Golden Age of rock climbing before and after the controversial ascent of the Dawn Wall in 1970. Virtual attendees answered trivia questions during the “live” screening on our event page. We had 5 community members win prizes for correctly answering the trivia. Our friends at Mountain Tools were kind enough to support the event by sending the winners Webolette Anchor Slings!

We miss climbing outdoors together and want to help make it possible for all to get this opportunity. For this event we gave proceeds to Bay Area Outreach & Recreation Program (BORP), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve the health, independence and social integration of children and adults with physical disabilities through sports, fitness and recreation programs. BORP offers a wide range of programs and activities, including adaptive climbing, cycling, kayaking, outdoor adventures, team sports, and fitness classes.  The movie screening raised over $600 for BORP, with more than $300 in donations from the climbing community and a BACC donation match. Thank you to all who attended, participated and donated! If you missed the event check out the film at
