    Janhukot

    Matt Pycroft (2018)

    In May 2018, three British climbers Malcolm Bass, Paul Figg and Guy Buckingham set out to attempt the first ascent of Janhukot, a mountain buried deep in the heart of the Indian Garwhal Himalaya. Janhukot (6805m) has seen attempts as far back as the 1980s, and is surrounded by some of the jewels of Himalayan summits - Shivling, Meru, Kedar Dome. We follow the climbers throughout their expedition, as they document their experiences and give an insight into the emotional and physical challenges they encounter throughout their journey. ‘Janhukot’ explores not just the idea, but the reality that, with some sacrifice and training, ordinary people can do something extraordinary.

    All roads lead to Scotland

    Matt Hardy (2016)

    Opposites attract. There isn’t a more appropriate statement to describe the unlikely yet formidable climbing partnership that is Nick Bullock and Tim Neill. They met on the mountains of Scotland in winter, and despite walking their own paths in the mountaineering world they are both drawn inexorably back there each winter. The fickle conditions that define Scottish winter climbing frequently lead to frustration, but the prospect of discovering an obscure gem presents an irresistible allure to them both.
