    Fools with tools

    Dave Brown (2004)

    In this fast-flowing climbing film that doesn't take itself too seriously, a group of unremarkable but determined climbers from Edinburgh attempts to repeat Scott Muir's dry-tooling test piece "Fast and Furious". Follow the fools' indoor training, easier "warm-up" routes and finally their attempts on the actual route. Self-deprecating humour and genuine human emotion surface when the climbers push themselves to their own physical and mental limits.

    The long hope Vod

    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.
