WINNER GRAND PRIZE DANISH ADVENTURE FILM FESTIVAL 2016 WINNER PEOPLE'S CHOICE KMF 2016 WINNER BEST CLIMBING FILM KMF 2016
Follow the fearsomely strong Blocheads as they quest for new lines and push the limits of human ability in this story of adventure, rocky passions and mutant fingers: a story of the search for bouldering gold.
There's history too: we delve into bouldering's murky past. Once it was just a bit of fun outside the climbing hut. Now it's 'a thing'. From the first recorded bouldering in the 19th century, through to the rise of bouldering as a sport.
We tell the story of the UK's first outdoor boulder comp, an up-yours to the establishment organised by 70's developer Jerry Peel. We learn about the Godfather John Gill, and how he influenced a young Jerry Moffatt, the first of a new wave of rockstars who helped shape the modern world of bouldering.
Blocheads includes numerous first ascents, off-the-scale gnarly moves and hair-raising highballs. Sumptuous production. Historical garnish. Anarchy. Daft bits. Awesome bits. Watch it.
