From the archive
This film was last shown on 11 March 2018
Mind Control - 18min
Without A Partner - 27min
Rope Solo Free Climbing is a sport that few people know about and even less people do. We join Pete Whittaker, his long time climbing partner Tom Randall and Big wall solo climbing expert Andy Kirkpatrick as they take us through the paces of what it really means to make a solo-free ascent of El Cap.
'The Problem is if Pete pulled it off, nobody would even get it, nobody would understand how hard it was and to do it in a day, is totally insane' - Andy Kirkpatrick
'The ascent made by Pete on Freerider to me is hopefully the dawn of a new style of big wall solo climbing, big wall solo climbing on El Capitan for many years was just aid climbing. Now Pete has proven that it's possible to do that free climbing, but relatively fast' - Tom Randall
Steve McClure - Rainman - 7min
Where is your limit? Would you recognise it? For Steve McClure it’s an endless series of matchstick edges and nothing holds, high above the Yorkshire Dales. If this climb was one move longer, it would still be a dream… instead it’s the UK’s hardest-ever climb.
Uruca II - Bugaboos Edition - 8min
Hugo and Lipe are back on the wall to face all challenges(and some bad luck) of alpine climbing frozen and wet rock, poor communication with each other, inner demons, selfies, and the frigid, ever-changing weather.
Safety Third - 29min
For most climbers, it's safety first. But Brad Gobright is definitely not most climbers. Fueled by day-old donuts and unhindered by a fear of falling, this young talent is pushing the limits of scary trad and free solo ropeless climbing in his backyard playground of Eldorado Canyon. Having survived a few big scares, Brad is determined to make his boldest ascent yet - a first-ever free solo of one of Eldo's most exposed and difficult routes.
