'The Great Wall saga and the unfinished story of the Indian Face is one of the most hallowed tales in British climbing. The line between genius and insanity has never been so blurred.' – Leo Houlding
The Story of Indian Face is a compelling 30 minute documentary about of one Britain's hardest adventure climbs, the The Indian Face (E9 6c). This spectacular line on Clogwyn Du'r Arddu is as controversial as it is deadly. The best climbers of the 80s attempted it, but it was Johnny Dawes who finally topped out in 1986.
The story unfolds using never-before-released footage of Johnny Dawes repeating the crux section of The Indian Face during the first ascent of West Indian Face in 1988. The saga of the original climb is narrated by Jim Perrin, with contributions from Joe Brown, John Redhead, Nick Dixon and Johnny himself.
