/ Hotaches thing...
‘Odyssey’ is a road movie that celebrates the best of British trad climbing, from the clean steep Basalt of Dumbarton Rock to the raging sea cliffs of Gogarth, four world renowned climbers take an exclusive tour round the UK to tick off some of our most fierce and inspiring routes. Cinematic filmmaking, cutting edge traditional climbing and a 7.5 ton converted truck - the Odyssey begins!
Maybe it'll be Hazel Findlay taking on Rhapsody. First female ascent would be a big deal.
Or maybe they'll 'just' be bouldering. Hoper the weather improves for them, or there will be a lot of shots of cups of tea in cafes.
I think there's actually quite a good Dogme 95 style film low budget, shaky camera type film to be made about a bunch of climbers on a rainy weekend camping in the pass. Lots of long slow shots of them sitting around in Pete's drinking cups of tea and flicking listlessly through the climbing magazines in Joe Browns while their unresolved tensions and frustrations bubble to the top.
But hopefully this won't be it. :-)
