Ice season is upon us and I was just wondering if anyone was familiar with any good ice or mixed climbing flicks for a little bit of winter stoke. I'm already familiar with Petzl's Quebec Ice Trip and Scottish Ice Trip to Ben Nevis, so anything besides that would be great. Crimp Junkie

I really enjoyed the Continuum Project. It's not pure ice, but well worth it. KevinH

You can download The Pinnacle off the Hot Aches site - you'd hard pressed to find a better winter climbing film.

Also, "Higher Ground" was the film that preceeded The Continum Project, and has some great mixed action and a commentary by Jeff Lowe about the evolution of mixed climbing.

Oh yeah, saw that one too. It's definitely worth a watch.

Forgot about "Higher Ground" - I really enjoyed that one. Haven't seen "The Pinnacle", but know of it. I'll have to download it. Thanks for the suggestion.

I was just thinking about this same topic. The '11 Reel Rock Tour has a great feature called Ice Revolution on Will Gadd and Tim Emmett (no relation!) developing tough routes at Helmcken Falls, but sadly we can't get it yet.

I'd like to figure out where to find the full footage of the climbing shown from 4:24-4:51 in The Alps IMAX film. I get pumped every time I see it, but unfortunately it's just a short clip.

Looking forward to seeing The Pinnacle, The Continuum, and Higher Ground. Thanks Kevins for those tips.

Definitely psyched to check those out, but they all seem pretty obscure. For instance, BD doesn't even have "No Pain, No Gain" on their website any longer, and Psyche Night isn't on the M9 website either. If you happened to know where any of these still existed that'd be great. Regardless, thanks for the suggestions!

I'll look around.

No Pain no Gain should be available as should Rich Purnell's videos.

Beyond Gravity has some good stuff on it. I think it is a North Face video

Just got the chance to watch that. Absolutely amazing, really puts it in perspective. Makes me think of Touching The Void as well. I definitely agree with it being sobering. Brendan Blanchard

This video is covered in detail and analysed by Will Gadd on his blog. It also includes a very lengthy response to the discussion by Ed Warren, the injured climber. Very worth reading and going through the comments, as well as Ed's response
