Winner of six international film festival awards - this documentary follows two of Britains best climbers on their first 'big wall' experience. Not exactly prone to doing things by halves - they set themselves the goal of free-climbing the Salathe (38 pitches/5.13b). After training for months in their native UK, they then spend the first two weeks of their stay in Yosemite getting acclimatised with the nature of crack climbing - and get spanked in the process.

The film is a deeply personal account of their dreams, vision and ultimate attempts at one of the most prized big free routes in the world - attempted over 6 days, and with a never-ending supply of bagels. A great insight into the world of big wall free climbing, and the courage and determination required to do it. Inspiring stuff.

The short film 'Splinter' is tacked onto the finish of the main feature - see seperate review for details.
