The Last Great Climb
Photography from Alastair Lee
The films tells the story of a climber’s life long dream reach one of the world’s most remote and difficult summits interweaved with the fascinating story of the mountain itself, which incredibly was only discovered in 1994. All set against the backdrop of the current age of mountaineering where few great lines remained unclimbed. Every inch of this daring journey is captured by multi-award winner Alastair Lee as we get to know the redoubtable and hilarious team. The team experience unprecedentedly good weather but eventually the harsh conditions begin to grind them down as inevitably the conditions become ‘less favourable’ whilst they attempt to defy the odds and complete the climb.
On Friday the 15th November, 8:30pm, The Last Great Climb will be screened at the Kendal Mountain Film Festival with an extended extended introduction by expedition leader Leo Houlding and then a special behind the scenes presentation by film maker Alastair Lee.
