The award-winning Hot Aches team presents a year at the cutting edge of hardcore trad climbing with this new film, which examines the diversity of climbing styles and locations that, together, make the British trad scene unique and respected around the world.
The featured climbs include numerous hard first ascents, audacious repeats and bold solos from the sea cliffs of Scotland to the gritstone test pieces of England, to the mountains in Ireland and Wales...
Some of the highlights include: Dave MacLeod on a mission to climb all the hardest routes; world-class boulderer, James Pearson, turns his attention to hard trad, coming away with some big repeats and then the ultimate prize—the first ascent of grit stone's hardest route; Canada's Sonnie Trotter visits Scotland to try Rhapsody (E11); Australian Ben Cossey rips it up on the grit; Germany's Jude Spancken onsights hard mountain trad; Katherine Schirrmacher on hard grit "adventure" first ascents of the sea cliffs of remote islands; plus much more, including special appearances from Johnny Dawes, Nick Dixon and John Dunne.
Running Time is 78 Minutes, plus DVD extras.
