Classic Bouldering Film - Stone LoveVideo

© Slackjaw Films

We're a couple of weeks into lockdown and a lot of climbing filmmakers are kindly uploading their back catalogues for us to enjoy. Ben Pritchard and Rich Heap have uploaded the classic bouldering documentary, Stone Love. The 2001 film is the story of five of Britain's strongest climbers – Malcolm Smith, Jerry Moffatt, Ben Moon, Richie Patterson, Andy Harris – on a week-long trip to the granite bouldering mecca of Cresciano in Switzerland – a beautiful alpine hillside full of classic lines and big grades.

Breaking the mould of traditional bouldering films, Stone Love is a unique window into what it takes to climb hard boulder problems: the camaraderie, the competition, the frustration and the sheer hard work.
