About the film.

We wanted to make a film for climbers, not a TV documentary. The sort of film that you'll want to watch again - Lots of good climbing on interesting routes. Plenty of action and not too much introspection and analysis. But more than anything else we wanted to make a film that was fun. Fun to make and fun to watch.

To The Rainbow

Also on the DVD we have a second film about Paul Pritchard and Johnny Dawes teaming up together as Paul makes a return to climbing 13 years after his head injury on the Totem Pole. They return to the Rainbow slab, one of their old stomping grounds. 15 mins

We really like this film. It's a totally different vibe and pace to the main film. We showed it to Johnny and he alternated between laughter and crying throughout.
