This event has been a staple on the Newfoundland and Labrador climbing scene for 16 years and has long been "The Competition" for local Men, Women and Children to put their climbing skills to the test. The Outfitters has long been a title sponsor for this event.
The event is organized by Wallnuts Climbing Centre and The Outfitters has long been a major sponsor and supporter.
A full day of climbing related activities including climbing clinics, gear demos, giveaways, a BBQ and a whole lot of climbing. This event draws a big crowd from the climbing community and gives climbers of all levels and abilities an opportunity to get outside and enjoy one of Newfoundland and Labrador's best crags.
Typically held in July at the Mainface in Flatrock.

Anyone wishing to car pool or needing a ride we will arrange for some people to be at the Wallnuts parking lot at 9:45 which will give plenty of time to get to Flatrock in time for the first clinic.
Full details of how to get to Flatrock and Main Face can be found on the Climb Newfoundland website linked below and we will ensure that the trail is clearly marked from parking areas.
Anyone wanting to climb on the day will need to sign a waiver which is available at the address below and we will bring plenty of copies along on the day. If you are 18 or under it will need to be signed by a parent or guardian.
REEL ROCK shows are exciting events where climbers and outdoors lovers come together to celebrate the ultimate in adventure filmmaking. Prize giveaways, appearances by top climbers, and fundraising for non-profit organizations are just some of the ways that REEL ROCK events are more than just film screenings.
Continuing with the theme of being a community based organization, in 2013 The Outfitters teamed up with the NL Jr. Sport Climbing Team to offer discount cards as a fundraising initiative to help support the Team’s travel fundraising efforts.
