Join us at Kendal Mountain Festival for another Sunday morning of mayhem. This year, Breakfast Club has moved to the main cinema screen in the Brewery Cinema, where we’re letting Niall Grimes off the leash and setting him loose on all our latest BMC TV films, personalities and star ambassador climbers.
Join us at 11 on Sunday morning when Niall Grimes – climber, storyteller and mischiefmaker – will host this unique event for BMC TV. Revive yourself with free coffee and pastries – or a cheeky Bloody Mary if that’s your bag – then sit back for a voyage of discovery into limits and the people that push them.
Features exclusive films, behind-the-scenes footage and plenty of dark humour. Stars BMC ambassadors Steve McClure and Mary-Ann Ochota, plus Pete Whittaker and special guests.
Where is your limit? Would you recognise it? For Steve McClure it’s an endless series of matchstick edges and nothing holds, high above the Yorkshire Dales. If this climb was one move longer, it’d still be a dream… instead it’s the UK’s hardest-ever climb. This is only way you’ll see footage of this cutting-edge route.
For Hazel Findlay, climbing means one thing: pushing yourself. With a surgeon about to slice into her shoulder, Hazel has to contemplate the biggest challenge of all: a life without climbing. An engaging short by leading filmmaker Jen Randall.
Walker Mary-Ann Ochota faces her fears on the famous Inaccessible Pinnacle. What is pushing her towards this inaccessible pinnacle? Why does she want to reach something that cannot be reached? What does she hope to achieve? Film by Finalcrux, featuring stunning drone footage.
Beyond the Wall
Ray Wood travels to Palestine to find out what's driving the local climbers.
Without a Partner
Pete Whittaker is no stranger to the edge. But his latest mission – a rope solo of El Cap in Yosemite – nearly broke him. With this brilliant and immersive film by Adam Bailes, you’ll feel like you’re up there, suffering with Pete.
