Rotpunkt’ documents the advent, the agony and the art of the redpoint through Alex Megos’s efforts to redefine the boundaries of the form. The film will trace the redpoint, which transformed rock climbing from an engineering problem into a brilliant test of mental and physical strength. From its origins with a ragtag bunch of tights-wearing revolutionaries in rural Bavaria, to its golden era with Wolfgang Güllich, to its new ideal in the German phenom Megos as he battles to unlock new levels of human potential. Meet us on our deck to enjoy fresh, Patagonia Provisions inspired Venezuelan cuisine from Areperia, 831 craft beverages, and limited edition Rotpunkt swag. Wear a yellow tee (Alex’s signature style) or bring one to get the Rotpunkt logo screen printed! We are also thrilled to have local singer songwriter Moshe Vilozny performing for us. Proceeds benefit Mountains 2 Sea, a local non-profit that partners with schools to provide at-risk youth with weekly outdoor adventure outings that focus on leadership skills, goal setting, and environmental awareness. We hope you join us for this jam-packed night of music, food, and climbing! 5:00 pm: Food, Ale, & Music on Deck, 7:00 pm: Doors Open, 7:30 pm: Film.
