    Alps 4000

    Alps 4000

    Martin Welch (1994)

    In 1994, during the worst summer weather for 10 years, British mountain guides Martin Moran and Simon Jenkins performed the incredible feat of climbing all the Alpine 4000-meter peaks continuously. Shunning any form of motorized transport, these Alpine purists powered their way by bike and on foot across the roof of Europe. The documentary follows the climbers and their support teams through the triumphs and traumas of this record-breaking 52-day epic. Filmed by climbing cameraman Martin Welch.

    Untrodden Karakoram

    Vic Bray (1961)

    The 1961 RAF Karakoram Expedition was, like the 1955 RAF Expedition to Lahul, an exploratory expedition to an unknown region. The RAF team in 1961 did not do everything they intended. They did not climb K6, but at least contributed to human knowledge on this peak. With two 22,000 feet and two 20,000 feet summits attained, a glacier system opened up, and a good map, they have no reason to be disappointed with their results. The expedition consisted of twelve British climbers of whom eleven came from the RAF, and one guest climber.

    Cold haul DVD

    Cold haul

    Karen Barber (2003)

    A compelling film about British Mountaineers Andy Kirkpatrick and Ian Parnell's controversial winter attempt to repeat Jean-Christophe Lafaille's groundbreaking route on the west face of the Drus, a route dubbed the hardest big wall in Europe. One can count the number of Brits who are bold enough to play this game on a pair of frostbitten fingers, and Andy and Ian are both experienced in the art of suffering. Through sunshine and snow, bad times and worse, this film is an honest and revealing insight into the world of modern alpinism and big-wall climbing.
