Monkey See, Monkey Do - New DVD Announced

New DVD!

Our latest DVD will be available from the 19th October. Leading up to the release I'll be adding some teasers and telling a few of the stories behind this new DVD.

For now here's a quick overview of what films are on the DVD:

Slate Monkeys

Set in the post industrial landscape of disused Welsh slate quarries, three very different climbers battle their way up some unusual climbing. Matt Segal, Hazel Findlay and Johnny Dawes take it in turn to crimp, palm, squirm and wriggle their way up the esoteric route, Gin Palace. But whose technique will prove successful?

Kevin Shields is known as the ‘one handed climber’. Despite being born with most of his left hand missing Kevin has shocked the climbing world with some daring and inspirational ascents. The film exposes Kevin’s motivations and follows his progression through the climbing grades, culminating in a gripping and palm-sweating attempt to solo E6 in Glen Nevis.

Little Big-Walling in Madagascar

James McHaffie on 'Tough Enough'

The West Face of Karimbony in the Tsaranoro Massif is home to one of the world’s hardest big-wall free climbs, “Tough Enough?”. James McHaffie and a team of top UK climbers head to Madagascar to find out if this route is indeed tough enough…

Hey Presto

Sonnie Trotter

World class climber Sonnie Trotter teams up with world class belayer Cory Richards to take on the Squamish classic, ‘Presto’. The film examines what it takes to belay on some the world’s hardest climbs.
