In this 30-minute epic film, we follow her on her three-year journey to climb the route. Emma's ascent was the third absolute ascent of this route, first climbed in 1996 by Neil Carson. James McHaffie made the second ascent in 2011.

    Tsurisuto

    David Petts (2019)

    Louis Parkinson's trip to Japan in search of some of the finest bouldering lines. Tsūrisuto means tourists, and the film is Louis's travel diary, which begins in Tokyo. His first stop is at the B-Pump Gym, where he makes the first contact and the first-hand experience with the 'Japanese bouldering style'. There Louis meets local climber Takeyuki Ogawa, who will guide him to the Ogawayama area to test himself on the most interesting problems. In the next stage of the trip, Louis travels to Kyoto and visits the Crux Gym and the Kasagi bouldering area, where he casually meets Yuji Hirayama. A film by David Petts produced for EpicTV.
