WINNER OF THE GRAND PRIZE AND BEST CLIMBING FILM AT THE KENDAL MOUNTAIN FILM FESTIVAL 2008
A gripping adventure into the world of cutting edge rock and ice climbing documenting what is possible with a ground up, no pre-practice approach resulting in raw, compelling and often frightening footage. The climbers in this film aren't necessarily the strongest but they have the biggest kahooners(!); willing to take a 30 foot fall for the ultimate on sight ascent.
In the age of indoor gym climbing and pre-practiced ascents, On Sight gets back to the basics of climbing, the simple game of getting to the top using only your strength, skill and bottle!
On Sight features an all star cast in spectacular locations on extraordinary routes produced in stunning High Definition.
