    The long hope

    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.

    5 Climbs, 5 islands

    Richard Else (2010)

    As part of the preparation for the BBC Scotland’s hugely successful Great Climbs live outside broadcast, Dave MacLeod and Tim Emmett came up with the ultimate climbing challenge - five new routes of E6 and above in five days on five different Scottish islands. The idea behind this film was as a backup to be shown on the television in case the Great Climb was unable to go ahead. Tides, weather, fatigue and the sheer difficulty of the routes were all against them, but our plucky lads were, of course, up to the task!
