Charlie - A Climbing Film

Montana Premiere

Charlie Barron, a Billings Montana local, is sixteen years old, a junior in high school, and arguably the best rock climber for hundreds of miles. This is the story of his First Ascent on Billings’ hardest boulder rock climb - the Neanderthal Project. Graded at v12, this boulder problem is only climbable for an elite few, mostly professional athletes. However, no other climber has tried Neanderthal due to the crumbling nature of Rimrock Sandstone and the unpopularity of the city as a climbing destination. Watch as Charlie claims his hometown area, suffers through an injury, and manages to inspire the entire community of climbers with his achievement.
