The REEL ROCK Film Tour is free for all Lees-McRae students, faculty and staff. It is also open to the public and donations will be accepted and appreciated.  Wily’s Bar & Grill will be serving beer and wine to those who wish to partake, and also showing clips from previous REEL ROCK Tours.  Promptly at 8 p.m., the past films will end to make way for the premier of the new films, which will be shown in Evans Auditorium.

The tour is designed to bring those who share a love and passion for the outdoors together and to be inspired by amazing footage of climbers and outdoorsmen pushing themselves to the limit. Along with the films, booths will be set up in the back of Evans Auditorium. Vendors will include the Mast General Store, Footsloggers, Rock Dimensions, North Carolina Outward Bound School and North Carolina Climbers Coalition.
