    Speak to me softly

    Henna Taylor (2018)

    Climbers love to talk about exposure, about vertical rock faces and sheer ridgelines, and the experience of hundreds of feet of air underfoot. But what of the exposure that happens within? The inner dialogue and the battle with fear, expectations, and self? 'Speak To Me Softly' is a short film and case study into the emotional and mental side of climbing. Akin to reading someone else’s journal or sneakily looking over their shoulder, the film invites you to take an honest and intimate peek into the headspace of climber having a not-so-sendy day.

    Slaydies

    Tara Kerzhner (2018)

    Slaydies /slādēz/ noun – Ladies who slay, otherwise known as female climbers who crush while bringing as much joy to climbing as they do progress for women in the sport. In the fall of 2017, three pro climbers and two videographers traveled to Mallorca to sport climb, deep-water solo, and experience the overwhelming psych of having an all-female crew. Although Emily Harrington, Paige Claassen, and Margo Hayes, all grew up in the climbing scene near Boulder, Colorado, they had never done a climbing trip together just for fun.

    Saraghrar

    Lluis Chacon (1984)

    Documentary of the Catalan expedition that in 1982 climbed the southwest wall of the Saraghrar, which at 7349 meters is the fourth highest mountain in Hindu Kush, in Pakistan. The members of the expedition were Joan López, Toni Garcia, Nestor Bohigas, Nil Bohigas, Enric Lucas, Ricard Herrero and Joan Martí. The northwestern summit of the Saraghrar had been the target of two other previous Catalan expeditions, in 1975 and 1977, respectively; but it was not until 1982 that Juan Lopez, Enric Lucas and Nil Bohigas finally reached the top of this adjacent peak.

    Rotpunkt

    Chelsea Jolly (2019)

    Through failure and success, Alex Megos strives to be the best climber in the world. The movie is a portrait of the German climber and a look into the history of free climbing including the likes of Kurt Albert and Wolfgang Güllich. The film analyses Megos through his strengths and weaknesses and delves into his origins, namely the start of the Rotpunkt movement, that revolutionary red dot invented in 1975 in Germany's Frankenjura by Kurt Albert which indicates that a route has been climbed free, without the use of aid for progression.

    Rise

    (2019)

    Jacopo Larcher's pursuit to resolve 'Tribe', possibly the world's hardest trad climb, in Cadarese, Italy. For Larcher, this route represents not only 'the most difficult thing I’ve ever climbed' but also, and above all, the end of an odyssey that began 6 years ago when he first started to delve into the trad climbing game. This venture took Larcher from the rudimentary basics of climbing with nuts and friends to cutting edge trad repeats as well as huge big wall ascents, and over the years he has rapidly transformed into one of the most versatile climbers in the world. Tribe, with no fixed gear and climbed while placing all pro on lead, stands as testament to Larcher’s vision, ability and evolution as a climber.

    Pobeda

    (2018)

    Sakha is a region of highs, lows, and little else. It’s home to Pik Pobeda, the highest mountain in Siberia, and where the lowest temperature in the Northern Hemisphere was recorded - a deadly -71.3C. It’s also the desolate and hostile landscape in which alpinists Tamara Lunger and Simone Moro found themselves in February 2018, preparing to attempt the first-ever winter ascent of this 3003m frozen monolith. A record-setting expedition in an environment that makes rescue impossible.

    Night Moves - Brazil

    Matty Hong (2019)

    In July 2019, Giuliano Cameroni, Daniel Woods, Shawn Raboutou and Nina Williams travel to Brazil on a journey of climbing between beaches, relaxation, explorations of wild areas filled with rocks, and furious attempts at the coolness of the night. On that trip, first boulder ascents emerged, as Aquaman V14 (8B+), by Giuliano Cameroni, or Direct Hit V15 (8C), by Daniel Woods. Both in Ubatuba, in the same area where Shawn Raboutou also established Kaya V13/14 (8B/+). Matty Hong's film collects, with wonderful shots, the best of that trip.
