I'm after a new climbing film - any recommendations?

Bought Autana, Echo Wall and Life on Hold recently but I'm after a good adventure film now.

Has everyone stopped watching full length climbing films? - might be why there doesn't seem to be as many being released.

In reply to The_flying_climber: its not really clear what youre looking for! surely Autana WAS an adventure film "Autana - first ascent in the lost world'. Leo Houlding, Jason Pickles and Sean 'Stanley' Leary go deep into the Amazon to attempt a first ascent on the magnificent Cerro Autana. "
What sort of full length climbing adventure film are you looking for?

In reply to pebbles:

err.. Yes Autana is really good but I have seen it now....

Lets make it a bit easier then - Are there any new full length climbing films (I.e Not a Youtube freebie) that you would recommend and worth a purchase. Is it really that hard?

In reply to The_flying_climber:it wasnt clear from your post, it looked as if you were saying you didnt count the ones listed as adventure films.

Vertical Sailing is fantastic (big walling in greenland)
likewise The Asgard Project (climbing Mt Asgard on Baffin island)
neither are brand new, but not on your 'just watched' list either, and well worth buying imho

Or that he was saying he didn't count them as "good adventure films" :-)


I still recommend The Sharp End though it's not really an adventure film, nor "long" (it is basically a series of shorts)

In reply to pebbles:

Seen, Wide Boyz, 'The Asguard Project' and 'Asguard Jamming'. I will stick Vertical Sailing on the list.

Looking forward to Alistair Lee's new film.

In reply to The_flying_climber: for something a bit different you might enjoy "beyond the summits" with catherine destivelle. catherine on big alpine routes as well as a fair bit of persopnal background and reflection. You're a bloke, its catherine destivelle, of course you'll enjoy it

In reply to pebbles:

On the list.... ;-)

In reply to The_flying_climber: "Moonflower", "Blood, Sweat and Bagels", "Knowing Andy" are all good adventyre films I don't think anyone has mentioned yet. Anything by Alastair Lee is going to be good too, imho.

In reply to The_flying_climber: I like First Ascent. It made me want to head straight out on an adventure! Long Hope and Onsight are great watches too.

Le Petit Bus Rouge. This film does contain rather a lot of "larking about" but the climbing scenes in it are spectacular.

Plus the English version is narrated by the UK's favourite mountain botherer*
