Video by Half Circle G Productions – “Stoney Point: Portrait of an American Crag” is a feature-length documentary on the unique history and climbing culture of a small city park on the outskirts of Los Angeles. Though often overlooked, few climbing areas can compare with the rich and storied history of Stoney Point. For the last 80 years, the Point has served as a breeding ground for some of America’s greatest climbers. Royal Robbins, Yvon Chouinard, John Bachar, Michael Reardon, and many more were all at one time or another Stoney locals. The marks they left behind are still visible today in the climbs they established and the community they helped develop.
The documentary goes on sale May 14, 2012, at stoneypointdocumentary.com. $29.95 for the DVD, which includes 30 extra minutes of bonus features, and $14.99 for the HD download.
