Wideboyz 2 - Slender Gentlemen - World Premiere - Friday 4th April 7.30pm
Following Sheffield climbers Tom Randall and Pete Whittaker the movie revolves around two questions: how did Tom and Pete cope with their new found fame after their ascent of the amazing Century Crack; and how did they move their climbing on from being known as the "weirdos who squeeze into spaces climbers shouldn't" to more recognisable activities. The film follows their quest to move on from Century and send some of the hardest cracks around including the 8C graded single pitch crack 'The Cobra' in Squamish Canada.
Wide Boyz scooped the top two spots in the SHAFF Best Climbing Film category last year for the long and short edit. Wideboyz 2 will also be repeated in the Climb 1 movie selection showing on Sat 5th 4.30pm and Sun 6th 7pm
