Description

'One of the very best climbing videos I've ever had the pleasure of watching.' – Bjorn Pohl, UKClimbing.com

Better Than Chocolate is the stunning movie by Haroun Souirji about bouldering in Switzerland.

‘Why Switzerland?’ The answer is simple. Fontainebleau aside, it probably has the largest concentration of bouldering areas in Europe and arguably the best gneiss rock anywhere. It is also the land of many historical ascents including the first 8B, 8B+ and 8C (Fred Nicole). If you think Swiss chocolate is good, taste the boulders...

The idea for Better Than Chocolate was to simply remind us that climbing is our way to enjoy life rather than emphasise performance or trying to ‘look cool’. Still, in terms of performance, Better Than Chocolate delivers with first ascents and repeats up to 8C. Includes Paul Robinson on Ill Trill (8C) and From Dirt Grows the Flowers (8C).

Starring Michele Caminati, Paul Robinson, Robert Leistner, Julia Winter, Chris Webb Parsons, Anthony Gullsten, Olivier Mignon, Jule Wurm, Anton Johansson, Antoine Eydoux and Fred Moix. Guest appearance by Fred Nicole. Shot on location in Magic Wood, Chironico, Cresciano, Brione and many more areas.
