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 is in U.S. American currency to add this movie to your collection.

  1.  £8.99 if you order while the movie is free to watch online

Free Climbing The PreMuir

Brit Hazel Findlay has put together a nice post on her blog detailing her efforts, along with Neil Dyer and James McHaffie, to do the 2nd free ascent of the PreMuir (5.13+, 33 pitches) on El Capitan:

I think that when I look back at our PreMuir mission, what I will remember most is being on that ledge at 9.30 at night almost too mentally and physically tired of trying hard to enjoy the moment. We could taste the relief that was to come, but still there was some small doubt that we wouldn’t be able to pull it out of the bag. But skill, or good luck, or effort or something else was on our side and the next day we found ourselves at the top, too tired to sing and dance, but happy nonetheless.

It’s well worth reading the full post, which is loaded with great pictures from Tom Evans, to get a good sense of the effort required to free climb these hard lines on El Cap.
