/ Best climbing films?
Personally I love Hard XS, I'd love it just for the Great White Fear part, but then you get everything else too :)
Also, Hard Grit (obviously) - Seb Grieve on Megusha...
I like The Sharp End
Blood Sweat and Bagels is so awesome!
I don't think I'm alone in my choice of Vertical Limit.
Real rock Tour (2011 Onwards)
I'm quite surprised no trolls appeared to pick cliffhanger over vertical limit :)
then again, you really can't beat that dynamic cam placement, even with bolting a helicopter to a stack
I really like The Pinnacle dvd (the hot aches one, nothing else) it's got some cool history, the footage is awesome and the interviews with Jimmy Marshall are great.
Has to be
Best Forgotten Art/ Cliffhanger/ The sharp end/ Hard grit
King lines was ok apart from all the Whhooooping and hippy talk
Carry on Up The Khyber.
Bernard Bresslaw steals it for me as the menacing mountain infidel.
the first time I saw anyone climbing was Bond in For Your Eyes Only. The Eiger Sanction is pretty good.
My favourite though is K2, awesome, it's the film that made me want to be a climber.
Favourite 'proper' climbing film is Higher Ground, closely followed by Stone Monkey, E11, The Real Thing and Hard Grit
I watched it with my girlfriend and the look of shock and horror on her face at the end was hilarious. "You're not ever doing any of that climbing stuff ever again." It was then that I had to explain that you don't often climb with explosives and that climbing as a whole, really isn't like that. Still, her face and expression made the film worth it.
With a name like Rocky I'm really not surprised! Haha.

Seconded - and the 'sequel', The Long Hope is good too.
For something a bit less thoughtful and a bit more whoopy, I think the original First Ascent is still worth a look
