    Break on Through

    Matty Hong (2017)

    In high-end modern rock climbing, 5.15 is the top of the difficulty scale, a grade achieved by only a few men and never by a woman. Margo Hayes, a little known 19-year-old from Boulder, Colorado, is determined to change that. To be closer to the world’s hardest routes, she has moved to Europe, where she trains and climbs with the goal of succeeding on two of the most iconic 5.15s in France and Spain. But pushing her body and mind to the absolute limit, she risks injury and failure in her quest to be the first.

    Hansjörg Auer - No Turning Back

    Damiano Levati (2017)

    Probably no one has explored solo climbing like Hansjörg Auer, whose memorable feat on the 'fish route' has forever marked the history of this very peculiar kind of mountaineering. 'The hardest thing to do when you're doing free solo,' says Hansjörg, 'is not the ascent. It is to go back home.' Why? Because when loneliness strips you naked you understand the importance of the relationships you build with people around you. 'No turning back' is an introspective and epic film, delicate and powerful: there is not only vertical life, there is not only performance. There is an all-round discovery of what makes a life worth living.

    Cedar Wright (2017)

    Maureen Beck says: 'I don’t want to be known as just a one-armed climber, I just want to be a good climber. Maureen Beck may have been born missing her lower left arm, but that hasn’t stopped her from going hard. She takes whippers on 5.12 and crushes overhanging boulders, while shot-gunning beers. But she is not here to be your inspiration. 'People say... 'Look, a one-armed climber, now I have no excuses. I’m like, dude, you never had any excuses in the first place.' Maureen is here to crush the gnar — with one bloody stump helping her get to the top.
