Emma Twyford in Chamonix - Alpine Defined (Rab)

Emma Twyford in Chamonix - Alpine Defined (Rab)

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.

Libby Peter - Devotion (Rab Commitment series)

Libby Peter - Devotion (Rab Commitment series)

Libby Peter is one of the UK's most respected climbers, with years of experience in expeditions, instructing, coaching and guiding around the world.

Throughout her astounding career Libby has been consistently committed to fulfilling her personal and professional objectives, whilst raising her daughters Ruby and Zoe in the climbing hub of North Wales, UK.

In "Devotion" Libby reflects on how - quite unintentionally - climbing has shaped her life. It's an eloquent and honest perspective that anyone who spends time in the outdoors will be able to relate to, as Libby reminds us through her own experiences that the inevitable changes life throws at us are to be embraced, and accepting the unexpected is a part of the journey.

Altai mountains China - A Skier's Journey

Altai mountains China - A Skier's Journey

Skiing as sport is in it's infancy in China. A phenomenon of the country's exploding middle class. As a means of survival, however, it is thousands of years old, a stone age hunter-gatherer technology born in the Altai mountains where China, Mongolia, Kazakhstan and Siberia merge. On a vast trajectory that spans 11,000km of Northern China, Chad Sayers and Forrest Coots touch down into the rich past and dizzying future of these two respective Chinese ski cultures. As one rapidly expands, they find the other is at risk of disappearing. Presented by Arc'teryx in association with Gore-Tex.

Arc'teryx climbing Riders On The Storm

Arc'teryx climbing Riders On The Storm

On February 6th, Ines Papert and Mayan Smith-Gobat summited Torres Central, in Torres del Paine National Park (Chile) via the extremely difficult east face. 25 years after the first ascent of this historic route, this was only the fifth known successful ascent of Riders on the Storm. This region is famous for its unstable weather conditions, making it a very challenging place to climb.

Riders on the Storm was first climbed by Wolfgang Güllich, Kurt Albert, Bernd Arnold, Peter Dittrich and Norbert Bätz in January 1991 during 15 days of climbing over a five-week period. This stunning line on the sheer 1300m east face of Torres Central line went at 7c, A3. The climbing is very varied and demanding, ranging from delicate and runout face climbing to wide cracks and roofs, which were often entirely iced up.

Natalie Berry || Transition (Hot Aches Productions)

Natalie Berry || Transition (Hot Aches Productions)

Natalie Berry is one of the UK's leading female sport and competition climbers. After discovering climbing by chance at the age of 8, she went on to compete with the GB Climbing Team all over the world and has numerous podium places in both lead climbing and bouldering.

As well as her success as a competition climber, Natalie is also one of the top female sport climbers in Britain, being one of only a handful of British women to have climbed the grade of 8b.

Despite having lived in Scotland all her life, home to some of the best traditional and winter climbing in the world, she has yet to venture into the mountains so close to home.

Now wishing to further her experiences Natalie plans to take up traditional climbing, winter mountaineering and skiing. Acting as mentor and climbing partner through this process is Scottish all round climber Dave Macleod.

‘Transition’ follows Natalie over the course of a year as she takes her first exploratory steps into a new world, closely following the highs and lows of the pursuit of a life in the mountains

Coldhouse Collective || All Roads Lead to Scotland

Coldhouse Collective || All Roads Lead to Scotland

Opposites attract. There isn't a more appropriate statement to describe the unlikely yet formidable climbing partnership that is Nick Bullock and Tim Neill. They met on the mountains of Scotland in winter, and despite walking their own paths in the mountaineering world they are both drawn inexorably back there each winter. The fickle conditions that define Scottish winter climbing frequently lead to frustration, but the prospect of discovering an obscure gem presents an irresistible allure to them both.

Alastair Lee - Citadel

Alastair Lee - Citadel

WINNER BEST DOCUMENTARY, TORELLO MOUNTAIN FILM FESTIVAL, SPAIN 2015

“Riveting, pure, & unbelievable”, Alpinist Mag

WORLD'S FIRST 4K MOUNTAINEERING DOCUMENTARY AVAILABLE AS 4K DOWNLOAD

Dubbed ‘The Mountain God’, the Citadel is a stunning 3000m peak in one of the remaining untouched corners of the Great Alaskan Range: The Neacola Mountains. Due to their typically poor conditions and remote location are largely unexplored. Matt Helliker and Jon Bracey are one the UK's most formidable partnerships in alpine climbing with many world class ascents to their names from the UK to the Alps and the greater ranges. Their objective is to make the first ascent of the extraordinary 1200m long north-west ridge.

Adventure film maker Alastair Lee embarked upon this project with the objective to push the boundaries and capture hard alpine climbing like never before. Employing the latest cineflex technology combined with an innovative vision the final results are truly incredible; the next dimension in mountain film. ‘Citadel’ is a stunning visual. To match its visual prowess ‘Citadel’ is laced with a strong sense of narrative. Like all good stories it is character driven and centres around one of the most unlikely yet successful partnerships in world alpinism. That of Matt Helliker and Jon Bracey.

The stage is set for why two accomplished mountaineers must still seek out new lines in unchartered territory where the odds are stacked heavily against them. We take a front seat ride and are with Matt and Jon every step of the way through all the hardships and struggles, hopes and disappointments. What unfolds is a classic narrative arc where success is snatched from the jaws of defeat.

Antarctic Mountaineering | Kabatic - Unclimbed Peak

Antarctic Mountaineering | Kabatic - Unclimbed Peak

When explorers Mike Libecki, Freddie Wilkinson, Cory Richards and Keith Ladzinski set out for the Wohlthat Mountain Range of Antarctica on a National Geographic grant to climb and explore this nearly uncharted part of the world, they had no idea what they were getting themselves into. It's nearly impossible to prepare for a place this uninhabitable, almost as impossible as the chance of being rescued if anything goes wrong. Inland Antarctica is hailed as the largest desert in the world, a nearly lifeless landscape ravished by Katabatic winds that scour the landscape at over 100 mph. The team set out on a first ascent mission to climb unnamed peaks and ended up having an adventure they will never forget. - Epic TV

Leo Houlding || The Last Great Climb

The 2013 film from Alastair Lee is an epic to end all mountain epics se t in the stunning mountains of Queen Maud Land, Antarctica. The feature documentary follows top adventure climber Leo Houlding with his tried and tested team of Jason Pickles and Sean ‘Stanley’ Leary as they attempt to make the first ascent of the NE ridge of 'the master piece of the range' the majestic Ulvetanna Peak (2931m). One of the most technically demanding climbs in the world's harshest environment. The film tells the story of a climber's life long dream reach one of the world's most remote and difficult summits, interweaved with the fascinating story of the mountain itself; which incredibly was only discovered in 1994. All set against the backdrop of the current age of mountaineering where few great lines remained unclimbed. Every inch of this daring journey is captured by multi-award winner Alastair Lee as we get to know the redoubtable and hilarious team. The crew experience unprecedentedly good weather but eventually the Antarctic conditions begin to grind them down as inevitably the conditions become 'less favourable' whilst they attempt to defy the odds and complete the climb.
