The great climb

The Great Climb DVDThe DVD of the full 6 hour live climb by myself and Tim Emmett on BBC television from Sron Uladail on the Isle of Harris. Because there is so much climbing footage, it comes as a 3xDVD set with additional footage not seen on the live programme such as the roof on Pitch 4 and various extras about the background and making of the programme. There is also an option to watch with or without the audio from the commentary team.

On August 28th we climbed the 5 pitch E9 7a first ascent live on British TV for 6 hours, topping out 30 seconds before the end of the scheduled broadcast. Sron Uladail is the most overhanging cliff in the UK, 130 metres high, 50 metres overhanging. The pitches were E7, E9, E7, E6, E5 and the last pitch proved to be the second crux of the route being soaking wet in a traditional Scottish rainstorm. The route (‘The Usual Suspects’) turned out to be the hardest multipitch mountain route in the UK. Climbers and non-climbers alike sat and watched our progress non-stop for the whole afternoon, wondering, as we were, if we would succeed right until the very end of the broadcast when we topped out, soaking wet, knackered, but ecstatic. PAL DVDs available only. If you’d like it signed, just ask in the ‘Special instructions to merchant’ field of the checkout page.
