PSYCHE produced by multi-award winning film maker Alastair Lee. Alastair is renowned for his innovative camera work, humour, creative editing and promises this latest production will be his most spectacular yet. Incorporating the best of British climbing featuring Steve McClure, Andy Kirkpatrick & Ian Parnell and Dave Birkett. The three main films on the dvd are:
SKYE WALL (trad) Dave Birkett goes in search of his dream line in the remote setting of Skye’s famous Cuillin Range. This stunning and gripping adventure results in one of the year’s most significant first ascents
PATAGONIAN WINTER (alpine) Andy Kirkpatrick is a pioneer of winter climbing in Patagonia with many hair-raising ascents to his name. This hilarious film documents his latest Patagonian horror show; an attempt at the first winter ascent of Torre Egger with fellow alpinist Ian Parnell.
MAGIC NUMBERS (sport) Steve McClure is Britain’s most accomplished sport climber as the awesome action footage in this mini profile demonstrates. Featuring Steve on his many 9a’s at Britain’s steepest limestone crags including his latest Kilnsey crimpfest. Plus an 8c first ascent and an 8b flash during the late hours of a French climbing festival, party!
PSYCHE won the ’People’s Choice Award’ and ’Best Mountain Adventure Film’ Award at the Kendal Mountain Film Festival 2007. You can see clips here -http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bpAgHQjK5zYhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmOb0nPbzEk
