Description

The multi award winning Hot Aches team present a year at the cutting edge of hardcore trad climbing.

Featuring Britain's best rock climbers, plus top overseas visitors, Committed Vol.1 packs in over 200 'E' points of action: the hardest and most dangerous ascents that have been grabbing the climbing headlines everywhere.

It examines the diversity of climbing style and location that together, make the British trad scene unique and respected around the world. The featured climbs include numerous hard first ascents, audacious repeats and bold solos. From the sea cliffs of Scotland, to the gritstone test pieces of Enlgand, to the mountains in Ireland and Wales...

One theme is consistent: Committed.

  • Dave MacLeod ‘after E11’ - on a mission to now climb all the hardest routes
  • World class boulderer, James Pearson, turns his attention to hard trad, coming away with some big repeats and then the ultimate prize - the first ascent of gritstone’s hardest route
  • Canada’s Sonnie Trotter visits Scotland to try Rhapsody E11
  • Australian Ben Cossey rips it up on the grit
  • Katherine Schirrmacher on hard grit
  • Germany’s Jude Spancken - hard on sighting
  • ‘Adventure’ first ascents of the sea cliffs of remote islands
  • Plus much more including special appearances from Johnny Dawes, Nick Dixon and John Dunne
