Bouldering • 1h 1m
The original Big Up Productions film that launched Chris Sharma into the spotlight.
In 1998, Reel Rock founder Josh Lowell set out to make his first real climbing film, spending the winter in the bouldering mecca of Hueco Tanks, Texas, trying to capture the vibe of the emerging sport. Featuring the 16 year old phenom Chris Sharma, who climbed the world's hardest boulder problem that season, and would go on to revolutionize hard climbing for decades. After being out of print for years, Free Hueco! was remastered in 2023 for the 25th anniversary.
