    Paul Diffley (2011)

    In 1970, climber/poet Ed Drummond and climbing partner Oliver Hill, spent 7 days making their way to the top of a wild and remote 1150’ sea cliff at St John’s Head on the Island of Hoy. Forty years later, Scottish climber Dave MacLeod sets out to climb the cliff in a single day. Director Paul Diffley captures MacLeod’s historic climb in great style, contrasting it with the challenges of Drummond’s first ascent – then achingly returns to the route with Drummond.

    Alastair Lee (2018)

    Robbie Phillips, Calum Cunningham and Alan Carne attempt to open a new climb, ground up, on a 700m Big Wall called Tsaranoro Atsimo in Madagascar.

Once the free climbing begins disaster strikes, Alan takes a bad fall shattering his lower right leg, an epic ordeal unfolds to get Alan from the remote big wall to safety. Then, Robbie and Calum must decide whether to continue with their push or give in to their emotions. A shorter version of the film was part of the 2018 Brit Rock Film Tour.

    The last great climb

    Alastair Lee (2013)

    Are rock stars Leo Houlding, Sean “Stanley” Leary, and Jason Pickles up to their old tricks again? Maybe so, but they’ve brought along a few new friends and hopes of a bold new line on a remote spire in Queen Maud Land, Antarctica. They’re going big again – the majestic unclimbed Ulvetanna Peak is their goal this time. But they’re in the middle of nowhere, miserably cold, a bit delirious. Hopefully it’s nothing a little adrenaline can’t cure.

    Don Whillans - Myth and legend DVD

    Don Whillans - Myth and legend

    Leo Dickinson (2006)

    Don Whillans was one of the leading rock climbers of his generation. This film examines Don’s gritstone horrors, his hard routes in Wales, then follows him to the Alps and beyond on several of his epic expeditions. But it also focuses on Don’s unique humor, his devastating oneliners that pricked pomposity wherever he found it and poked fun at those who deserved it. Don may have died 20 years ago but the myth surrounding Whillans can still be heard whenever climbers reminisce about a time when hard men were hard and legends were being made. Perhaps his partner Joe Brown best sums him up, 'Don was unique'.
