Liquid Ambar should be reported as hard 8c as graded by Jerry Moffatt, Ben Moon and Rich Simpson, i'm sure Pete will have a better idea of the grade when he's climbed more 8c/+s (prob won't be long!).

Any word on when 'Tis the Season' is due out? I can't wait!

In reply to Fraser:

'Tis the Season' was purely an online release, and what you saw was the final film. Big Up do have another film out this year though, that was premiered just a few days ago, called 'Progression'.

Sender Films have been producing a TV Series for the Nat Geo Adventure Channel, called 'First Ascent', which they've been showing some episodes of, alongside Progression.

You can view the trailer for both the Big Up and Sender releases here:

These two production companies have really set a new level in climbing films. They're setting an ever-increasingly, ridiculously high standard, in both visual and story-telling terms. Really looking forward to watching these.

Looking forward to checking out all these films.

Progression and the First Ascent series both feature on the Reel Rock Tour which will be showing at The Climbing Works on 18th Oct. Progression is due out around that date so it's likely that this will be its UK premiere 'so to speak'

As steep media states, both BigUp and Sender have been pushing the envelope on climbing films so it should be good viewing.

I wondered that too, Tom.

The Bottom Line at Brimham, maybe?
