    The Last Blue Mountain

    Lawrence Gordon Clark (1971)

    A film recreating the heart-rending true story of the 1957 expedition to Mount Haramosh in the Karakoram range in Pakistan. With the summit beyond reach, four young climbers are about to return to camp. Their brief pause to enjoy the view and take photographs is interrupted by an avalanche that sweeps Bernard Jillott and John Emery hundreds of feet down the mountain into a snow basin. Miraculously, they both survive the fall. Rae Culbert and Tony Streather risk their own lives to rescue their friends, only to become stranded alongside them.

    The hidden kingdom

    Allen Jewhurst (1987)

    In 1986 Steve Berry led an expedition to climb the highest unclimbed peak in the world. It also happens to be the highest peak in Bhutan. Two years of laborious preparations had led up to the attempt to get the climbers on the mountain in the limited weather window between the end of the monsoons and the onset of winter. Their team almost reached the summit but they were driven off by horrendous storms. Due to the climbing restrictions in Bhutan, the mountain remains today as the highest unclimbed peak.

    The Dawn Wall - Behind the scenes

    Josh Lowell (2018)

    The Dawn Wall is the film that documents the first free ascent of the most difficult big wall climb in the world, completed in January 2015 by Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson. The true achievement is obviously the first free ascent Dawn Wall, carried out by Tommy and Kevin at the end of 2014 and the start of 2015. But almost equal to that undertaking are the efforts required to document their attempts and progress, for almost an entire decade, up the smooth 1000 meter El Capitan in Yosemite. In this making of video, the guys at Sender Films share some of the strategies they used to push the limits of what’s possible in big-wall filmmaking.

    Summit Fever

    Matt Dickinson (1996)

    Seele aus stein

    Taylor Zann (2014)

    This six-minute short film revolves around Bernd Arnold, the iconic barefoot climber from Saxony, who has logged over 980 first ascents in his 67 years. Now facing the phase of decline, he reflects on the power of psyche in overcoming fear. Before mainstream climbing brands, sponsorships, and magazines, Bernd was out on the rock pushing his limits. With no chalk, no protection, no shoes, and no rope, he has constantly walked the line between life and death. Why? As Camus once said, 'The struggle itself toward the heights is enough to fill a man’s heart.'

    Statement of Youth

    Nick Brown (2019)

    The 1980's saw climbing standards rise exponentially. At the start of the decade, 7b+ was cutting edge, but by the end of the '80s 9a was the new world standard. By the end of the decade, the sport had changed beyond recognition and a paradigm was set for future generations. A small group of climbers would do anything to climb full-time: sleeping in sheds underneath crags, shoplifting for food and clothes, and living off the dole. These climbers were living outside the rest of society and went on to become the most influential figures in the history of British climbing.

    Spectre Expedition - To the End of the Earth

    Alastair Lee (2018)

    How about attempting the second summit of the most remote mountain on Earth? The plan, by design, is ambitious; it requires kite skiing almost 2,000 kilometers round trip, towing gear on sleds, just to reach the highly technical peak, known, menacingly, as The Spectre. The three expedition members battle logistics, distance, wind and no-wind, frostbite, crevasses, and wrong turns. 'Who’d have thought I’d actually get here one day?' says expedition leader Leo Houlding, as the team closes in on the objective. He can be forgiven for scarcely believing where he finds himself. Who else could ever claim that 'We are the most remote people on Planet Earth right now'?
