    La Cour des Grands

    Guillaume Lion (2016)

With his girlfriend Alizée, a renowned climber, he spends the winter in Siurana, Catalonia – the perfect place for tough climbing. ‘The Big Boys’ Playground’ is about the mindset of climbers. Sometimes the hardest part is simply accepting that one is able to succeed. Performance, more than a physical achievement, seems to be a state of mind. Through the sport of climbing the film reflects on universal topics such as the pursuit of excellence, achievement of goals and life as a couple … ‘The Big Boys’ Playground’ has the ambition to reach the general public, but at the same time it takes a critical look at already well-established climbing film industry.

    Into the light

    Jochen Schmoll (2014)

    Majlis al Jinn, a huge subterranean chamber in Oman, is big enough to house the Great Pyramid of Giza. Climbers Chris Sharma and Stefan Glowacz attempt an ascent up the massive arch and back to the light of the surface. After rappelling down a 170-metre drop, Chris Sharma and his partner set out for their record-breaking ascent from the deepest point of the cave. Fighting gravity they follow the enormous arch suspended upside down much of the time. It is a ground-breaking climb back into the light. The route has never been attempted before and counts as the world’s longest roof climb with 13 pitches.
