Films

The Brit Rock Tour’s main feature for 2016 is the cinematic spectacular revelling in the UK’s golden age of bouldering ‘Blocheads’ premiering at the Kendal Mountain Festival, 18th Nov.

BLOCHEADS

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 70’s 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-erasing highballs. Sumptuous production. Historical garnish. Anarchy. Daft bits. Awesome bits. Watch it.

The superstar line-up includes: Dan Varian, Ned Feehally, Jerry Moffat, Michaela Tracy, Alex Waterhouse and many more.

Blocheads┬átakes 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.

Produced and filmed by Alastair Lee, 60mins.

Shauna Coxsey goes Crack Climbing

Current bouldering world champion Shauna Coxsey decides its time to brush up on her crack climbing technique with crack guru Pete Whittaker aka ‘Wide Boy’. Plastic is traded for hand mauling rock in this thoroughly entertaining and lively short film. She said ‘this is only VS?’ He said ‘I’m going to make her bleed’.

14min film by Nick Brown and BMC TV.

The Quarryman

A superb short climbing film exploring James Pearson’s recent ascent of the infamous ‘Quarryman’. 30 years after the first ascent why is this route still such a coveted tick? Included interviews with Johnny Dawes and archive footage of the original ascent and the actual quarrymen who formed the route. Film by Neil Hart.

Total Running time 90mins.
