Started a only a few years ago, the Brit Rock Film tour is a celebration of the history of British climbing, and each year tours with a new set of exciting films about some of our best climbers, most challenging routes, and all sorts of mighty international climbing feats.

This year’s films are:

Blocheads
Never before have there been so many indoor walls; so many climbers obsessed with training; so many beasts of superhuman strength. That talent is not going to waste. We follow the fearsomely strong Blocheads as they quest for new lines and push the limits of human ability. It’s a story of adventure, rocky passions and mutant fingers. It’s the story of a search for bouldering gold.
Produced and filmed by Alastair Lee, 60mins.
 
Shauna Coxsey goes Crack Climbing
Shauna Coxsey’s iron grip has seen her demolish the competition to become IFSC Bouldering World Cup Champion, power up 8b+ outside, join the Redbull Team, become a BMC ambassador and – incredibly – be awarded an MBE for services to crushing. But what happens when the queen of British bouldering is faced with a brutal gritstone crack? We teamed her up with Wide Boy Pete Whittaker to find out.
A BMC TV production by Nick Brown.
 
The Quarryman
A superb short climbing film exploring James Pearson’s recent ascent of the infamous ‘Quarryman’. 30 years after the first ascent why is this route still such a coveted tick? Included interviews with Johnny Dawes and archive footage of the original ascent and the actual quarrymen who formed the route.
Film by Neil Hart.

Presented in association with the Newcastle Climbing Centre.
