It's that time of year again - Kendal hosts the Kendal Mountain Film festival celebrating mountain culture & adventure in film, lectures, art & literature.
It's a huge event over 4 days based in & around Kendal with the main focus around the Kendal Brewery Arts Centre.
I'll be introducing films throughout the weekend from 'Bongo Bar' a film documenting the first free ascent of Bongo Bar in Arctic Norway by Scottish Climber Dave MacLeod, 'Hardest in the Alps' a film following Iker & Enou Pou repeating some of the iconic routes in the history of Big Wall climbing, La Dura Dura a film of Chris Sharma & Adam Ondra battling it out to establish the worlds first 5.15c to The Kyrgyzstan Project where 3 climbers climbing a big granite wall in 2000 got caught up in a kidnapping by militants & held at gun point for six days & La Voie de Bonatti a documentary film of 2 french climbers paying tribute to the most famous Italian Mountaineer Walter Bonatti........& another 15 films throughout the festival weekend which should be great.
It's always a great social, so swing by if you're around, it'd be great to catch up.
Have a cheeky look at the trailer for all the films - very inspiring
PS managed 3 laps on the white circuit back to back & the same for the blue & yellow at the Fly Cave today, which I was pretty stoked about!! - getting fitter & seeing progress:)
