Everyday - Sarah Hueniken Climbs Mushashi (M12)

At a rating of M12, Musashi is one of the hardest mixed routes in Canada. Ten years ago, Outdoor Research Ice Climbing Ambassador and ACMG Alpine Guide Sarah Hueniken saw a video of the route being climbed by renowned climbers Will Gadd and Ben Firth. In March of 2013, she ventured into Alberta's Cineplex Cave and climbed it herself, becoming the first North American woman to successfully climb M12.

Storm Giant: The World's Hardest Drytooling Route

The story of Gord McArthur's ascent of Storm Giant (D16), the hardest drytooling* route in the world.

*Please note that this line has been changed from 'mixed' to 'drytooling' as this route was not established as a mixed route. The route is designated with a 'D' rating to distinguish it as such. We have changed the copy to reflect this here, but cannot change the film's title. This was an oversight on our part and apologize for the confusion.

Winter Layering - Mixed Climbing in Switzerland

Kandersteg in Switzerland has long been a mecca for alpine climbers. In 2015 Rab athlete Jeff Mercier made an incredible link up of three classic mixed routes - in a single day.

Jeff relies on Rab clothing and equipment on all his projects, and in the high mountains down insulation is still the ultimate insulator.

„ANUBIS“ - DANI ARNOLD COMPLETES FIRST REPEAT

Dani Arnold refuses to get wound up and completes a repeat ascent of Anubis on Ben Nevis in winter. In ancient Egyptian mythology, the black dog Anubis stands for mummification and death rituals. For fans of extremely difficult climbing tours, however, the name is firmly associated with an intense route in Scotland. Scotsman Dave MacLeod completed the first winter climb of this daring line in 2010, following his first ascent in the summer. Having previously climbed one of MacLeod's test pieces The Hurting, after a fierce battle, Dani Arnold has now completed the first repeat of perhaps the most difficult mixed route in the British Isles.

Scottish winter climbing: Orion Face Direct (V, 5)

In one legendary week on Ben Nevis in 1960 Jimmy Marshall and Robin Smith climbed six first winter ascents on consecutive days, including the mini Alpine-route, Orion Face Direct. They also made the first one-day winter ascent of Point Five Gully, went for a long walk and got arrested over an incident with some dominoes! Exactly 50 years later Dave MacLeod and Andy Turner pay tribute to Smith and Marshall by setting out to repeat all the routes that were climbed in that famous week. This film tells the story of the original events and follows MacLeod and Turner as they discover exactly what an achievement it was.

This short film about Orion Face Direct is an extract from The Pinnacle, a film by Hotaches

The Remarkables - Where we Belong - Mixed Climbing Friday's Fool

This movie retraces the first ascent of Friday's Fool, a steep mixed (rock + ice) climb on the front face of The Remarkables high above Queenstown in New Zealand.
Months of editing, filming, interviewing local climbers and taking pictures should hopefully give a sense to what climbing on The Remarkables is about!
This movie is dedicated to Howie Mcghie, whose love for the mountains, the outdoors shined through his life, so here is to Howie , a humble, generous and enthusiastic mountaineer. This movie would not have been possible without him.
