Watch Hot Ache’s Latest Film, Odyssey, Free Until 11/20

Did someone say “free” and “climbing movie” in the same sentence?  Yep:

‘Odyssey’ is a road movie that celebrates the best of British trad climbing. From the bold Northumberland sandstone to the raging sea cliffs of Gogarth, four World-class climbers (James Pearson, Hazel Findlay, Hansjorg Auer and Caroline Ciavaldini) embark on a road-trip to attempt some of the most fierce and inspiring routes in the UK. Cinematic filmmaking, cutting edge traditional climbing and a 7.5 ton converted truck – the Odyssey begins!

Stream Odyssey for free on the Hot Aches website until 11/20 after which you’ll have to fork over whatever £14.99 [1.  £8.99 if you order while the movie is free to watch online] is in U.S. American currency to add this movie to your collection.

Full FFA Of Hallucinogen Wall In Colorado’s Black Canyon

PlanetMountain has an interview with Austrian Hansjörg Auer on the heels of his FFA of Hallucinogen Wall (5.13+ R) in Colorado’s Black Canyon.  The route had been done mostly free back in 2004 by Jared Ogden and Ryan Nelson save for the 13th pitch which they drytooled with ice axes.  Says Auer, “I don’t really see the point of climbing a rock route and combining it with some drytooling.”
