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' -
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.
