Never before have there been so many indoor walls; so many climbers obsessed with training; so many beasts of superhuman strength. That talent is not going to waste. We follow the fearsomely strong Blocheads as they quest for new lines and push the limits of human ability. It's a story of adventure, rocky passions and mutant fingers. It's the story of a 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, something happened while the traditional climbers weren't watching. There has been a movement in the force. We tell the story of the UK's first outdoor boulder comp, an up-yours to the establishment organised by 70s 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.
The super-star lineup includes:
Dan Varian, Jerry Moffat, Ricky Bell, Alex Waterhouse and many more.
Blocheads takes us on a tour around some of the UK's finest bouldering venues. There are classic locations in the South-West, the Lakes, North Wales, Scotland, The Peak District, Yorkshire and the North-East. And there's a look at some of the country's newest areas with Murlough Bay at Fairhead in Northern Ireland.

November 22nd 2016 || The high mountains around Chamonix have long been a proving ground for aspiring alpinists and mountaineers who have used this alpine playground as a source of inspiration, training and experience for the greater ranges. So it was for Rab founder Rab Carrington, who spent his summers here during the 1970's, and so it remains to this day with many young climbers making the pilgrimage to this epicentre of European alpinism. In April 2015, Emma Twyford travelled to Chamonix with fellow Rab athlete Calum Muskett to attempt what would have been the first female ascent of the Voie Petite; a 14-pitch route on the Grand Capucin with difficulties up to 8b. While Emma is perhaps best known as one of the UK's leading trad and sport climbers, with numerous routes of 8b and above under her belt as well as trad ascents up to E9, the potential of climbing in the wild surroundings of the Alps still held a special draw for her. ... || Watch Emma Twyford rock climbing videos.

November 14th 2016 || Cranky, yet witty bouldering legend John "Verm" Sherman has lost his mojo and is jonesing to regain it. What better way than to climb the world's most famous boulder problem, Yosemite's iconic Midnight Lightning? He climbed it 25 years ago, but since then the climb has gotten harder and Verm's gotten softer due to beerlust and a third-degree burning passion for bird photography. Standing in his way is his age (57), weight (200 lbs), dozens of injuries, and myriad health issues. Nevertheless, he's stubborn and determined. Verm needs to save condors from extinction, and if leveraging his climbing celebrity will help, he'll stop at nothing. Verm enlists the assistance of Ryan "Meatball" Whited, a cheerfully sadistic personal trainer and musculoskeletal guru. A 6-month mission to whip Verm back into shape ensues, leading to a final confrontation with bouldering's "Problem of Problems". ... || Watch Bouldering Yosemite rock climbing videos.

September 28th 2016 || In early 2015, I climbed the Buttermilk classic Evilution to the lip (v10) and decided to keep on going. I've always wanted to do the direct, but never had the 1) balls or 2) skill set. Since I'm not quite tall enough to reach the last hold using the standard method, I opted for a micro crystal (two finger crimp) out right to help me gain the last hold. Carlo also used this method but we both felt uncomfortable biting down on the crystal that high off the ground. This was my last attempt. ... || Watch Evilution Direct rock climbing videos.

September 23rd 2016 || Pete Whittaker\'s ascent of Baron Greenback, E9/10 7a, at Wimberry was not only one of 2013\'s best ascents but resulted in one of the UK\'s hardest routes, period. On the same day Tom Randalll succeeded in making the second ascent ascent of Sam Whittaker\'s Wimberry masterpiece, Appointment with Death, E9 6c. This short video from Hotaches brings both these ascents together in an intense movie which shows the commitment and daring which goes into hard grit. Cementing Pete\'s status as a "gritstone God" after plenty of hard first ascents and repeats, including the phenomenal "Dynamics of Change" at Burbage South, Pete felt that Baron Greenback even put that into the shade. "Baron Greenback" is the hardest thing I\'ve done on grit and an accumulation of everything I\'ve learnt climbing on gritstone, along with a bit of consistant training on some weaknesses. I\'m very very pleased to have done this route. First ascents are always more special to me then repeats." Not only that it\'s a proud line and as Tom says "I think it's up there with all of the hardest routes on grit. It\'s a very special route indeed, if you\?re talking about cool, asthetic, big and hard lines." \ Appointment with Death, E9 6c, had stood unrepeated for around 10 years; its location on the wild Wimberry buttresses, combined with the difficult nature of the pebble pulling climbing (and maybe the name) had put people off. Tom writes about the day: "Often when you go out with friends at the crag, one or maybe two of you come away something really ballsy in the bag. It\'s just the way it works out. One of you mops up the collective pysche and cashes in, whilst the others are often happy to support and wait their turn some other day. When myself, Pete and Nathan Lee headed up to Wimberry we all had projects that we vaguely hoped we might climb that day, but it all depended on time, temperatures, sequences and luck. By the end of the day though, the planets had aligned and somehow all three of us had succeeded. It\'s strange looking back on the day now and it seems with retrospect that as each person succeeded, that made the next person even more motivated and committed. It was like a tsunami of positive gritstone force was rushing up the Wimberry slopes to push gravity the other way. Walking back down to the car park in the evening, the collective haul was the 3rd ascent (solo) of Order of the Phoenix by Nathan, the 2nd ascent of Appointment with Death by me and the 1st ascent of the Wimberry Prow project by Pete."

Synopsis Episode 3:
In search of Alex Megos\' formula for success, part 3 in the 4-part series stops at the legendary Peak District in the UK. Here Alex uncovers the mystery behind mystical routes and takes on one of the most historic routes climbing has to offer: Hubble. What does Alex have to say about the climb? "Hubble isn\'t just a route. Hubble is the myth Hubble. It only has 5 repeats so far and of course that alone lets you stand in awe of its story." Follow Alex as he visits Ben Moon and Jerry Moffat in Sheffield, breathes history in The Foundry and completes the circle by defying the laws of gravity in Hubble.
The Alex Megos Formula:
The Alex Megos Formula is a film portrait about the young world class climber Alexander Megos. The viewers go on a four-part journey in search of the secret formula as they join Alex on his travels and during his climbing projects and get to know his home and origin. The viewers try to find proof, leaning on basic concepts from physics like gravity, friction, momentum and others, of the existence of the formula. All four episodes take a look at Alex from different vantage points and different subject areas, always connected to an analogy from physics. The search for the formula leads to the conclusion that Alex is more than the sum of his traits. ... || Watch Alex Megos rock climbing videos.

August 5th 2016 || "The Unknown is an essential part of an adventure."
For Dave MacLeod, the Unknown is a catalyst for exploration and pioneering first ascents in his home country of Scotland. Growing up in Glasgow, his local haunt provided him with an unlikely playground upon which to build his climbing career. The basalt outcrop of Dumbarton _ a volcanic plug rising out of a decaying post-industrial wasteland offered an apprenticeship in climbing technique, self-motivation and dedication, helped along by a heady dose of youthful exuberance. On the horizon, and within Dave\'s sight, the Trossach hills marked the doorway to the Scottish Highlands. A stark contrast from the abandoned factories and deprivation of Dumbarton, the untouched ruggedness of the Scottish mountains opened his eyes to new possibilities. From top-end boulder and trad first ascents in the city, to ephemeral Scottish winter climbs in the Highlands and visionary lines in uninhabited corners of remote islands, Dave has cemented his status as one of Britain\'s most accomplished all-round climbers. 8B+ boulders, 9a sport climbs, E11 traditional and XII 12 mixed routes.
