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.
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.
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.
Here are some titles worth checking out; No Pain, No Gain Musashi On Ice 2004 Ouray Ice Festival: A Comparison of Styles Beyond Gravity Psyche Night.......MX and Ice Axis These should keep you psyched
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!
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
