(2013) Four award-winning films from Big UP Productions and Sender Films.
The Sensei (26:22)
Forty-three-year-old Yuji Hirayama is one of the great legends of modern climbing. For his ultimate climb, he recruits an unlikely partner in the goofy young American crusher Daniel Woods, who helps him achieve his dream route on the magical Mount Kinabalu, on the island of Borneo.
Spice Girl (23:55)
The UK climbing scene is known for its strict traditional ethic, yielding dangerous routes and a competitive machismo. It's the last place you'd expect to find a nice, little blond girl putting all the lads to shame. But Hazel Findlay is doing just that.
High Tension (39:54)
Mount Everest made loud headlines in 2013 when it was reported that Ueli Steck and Simone Moro, two of the world's great alpinists, were attacked by an angry mob of Sherpas at Camp 2 while attempting a cutting edge new. Amid the bizarre event, REEL ROCK was embedded with the climbing team, and given an exclusive look at what happened that day.
La Dura Complete (18:38)
Pure and simple, this is the real footage of Adam Ondra and Chris Sharma making the first and second ascents of the hardest route in the world, La Dura Dura. If you want to get psyched to yank hard, watch this film.
DVD Extras (27:34)
Adam Ondra sends two of the world's hardest boulder problems. Ueli Steck learns to fly a paraglider and uses it to enchain multiple peaks in record time. James Pearson and Caroline Ciavaldini send fantasy routes at 13,000 feet in Borneo, and more.
"Brightest stars and best films from the vertical world."
