    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.

    Edwin - A dream of White Horses

    Edwin - A dream of White Horses

    Paul Diffley (2019)

    A celebration of one of the UK's most impactful climbers: Edwin Drummond. We pay tribute to his life with a look at the historic first ascent of what's now considered to be one of the world's greatest trad multi-pitches 'A Dream Of White Horses'. Located on the spectacular cliffs of Gogarth this ascent was made by Ed Drummond and Dave Pearce in 1968. We bring the ascent to life through reenactment with James Mchaffie and Lex Pearce(Dave's son) accompanied by Ed's poetry which was as big a part of Ed's life as climbing. The two blend together beautifully in this atmospheric tribute to a man who changed the climbing scene forever.
