Event Details

Drawn From Here

Eric Pollard, a professional skier, artist, and designer, searches in common places to bring forward that universal magic we all enjoy when we’re immersed in snow and the mountains. He’s incredibly lucky, but also incredibly determined after an injury that would sideline and retire most athletes.

Queen Maud Land

A dream team of six elite climbers mount an expedition to one of the world’s last great climbing frontiers: the remote frozen towers of Antarctica. Jimmy Chin, Conrad Anker, Savannah Cummins, Anna Pfaff, Alex Honnold and Cedar Wright showcase a stunning, rarely visited wilderness and the suffering and vision needed to climb at the bottom of the world.

Climbing Blind

Jesse Dufton was born with 20% central vision. By the time he was 30, his vision was reduced to just light perception and 1 or 2% field of view. As a lifelong climber, Jesse flies in the face of adversity with his sight-guide, and fiancée, Molly. Despite his devastating condition, Jesse only takes on bigger challenges by attempting to be the first blind person to make a gripping ‘non-sight’ lead of the iconic Old Man of Hoy sea stack in Scotland.
