    Gone tomorrow

    Mike Wilkinson (2019)

    Nearly every winter for just a brief moment, in Kentucky there are more frozen waterfalls than anywhere else in the lower 48 states, maybe even the whole world. For the last 40 years, small groups of dedicated adventurers have been searching out and climbing this ice with a determined passion, because they know if it’s climbable today, it’ll probably be gone tomorrow. This adventure documentary takes the audience for a ride deep into the bushy hollers of Appalachia with a crew of harmless misfits as they race to search out and climb new ice routes before they're gone.

    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.

    The place of the Gaels

    Matt Hardy (2017)

    Scotland, the land of the Gaels, has not only interesting weather to offer, so it is said. The American professional climbers, Angela van Wiemeersch, Jon Frederick and Fabrizio Zangrilli, don’t want to trust hearsay, they want to find out for themselves and set off to climb in the Scottish Highlands. And, indeed, the weather is just as fickle, the people are just as welcoming and the climbing routes just as demanding as they've always heard.

    The hardest line

    Ben Winston (2014)

    In early 2014, Calum Muskett and Dave McLeod set out for Patagonia to repeat David Lama's free Compressor Route on Cerro Torre. With pitches up to 8a and bold, committing climbing high on the mountain, it is probably one of the hardest alpine climbs in the world.
    But Patagonia is famous for its foul weather and month-long storms. Would two of Britain's best climbers even get to see the mountain, let alone try one of the hardest, most famous and controversial climbs in the world?
