Kendal Mountain Film Festival Tour - Sheffield

About

Join us at the Abbeydale Picture House on 1st March 2019 for a one-of-a-kind evening.

We’ll be screening some of the world’s best adventure films and we have two incredible speakers lined up to share stories from their own adventures:

British alpinist Tom Livingstone has a penchant for trad, winter and alpine climbing - the bigger and harder, the better. In 2018 he successfully climbed Latok I in the Karakorum, Pakistan. The North Ridge of Latok is recognised as one of the last major lines in high-altitude mountaineering.

Holly Page is a British fell, trail and skyrunner, and this year she stormed the Migu Skyrunner World Series – winning 3 of the 8 races she competed in – becoming the Sky Classic World Champion.

As well as hearing from these two speakers, we’ll also be showing a selection of our most loved adventure films from Kendal Mountain Festival 2018.


Tom Livingstone

Tom is a 27-year-old British climber and writer who has a penchant for trad, winter and alpine climbing - the bigger and harder, the better.

Some of Tom's favourite routes include Cracking Up (IX,9), The Fourth Dimension (E7 6c), Fun or Fear (ED3), Rare Lichen (E9 6c), The Secret (IX, 9), Divine Providence (ED3), and a winter ascent of the Walker Spur (ED3). However the biggest news came last August when, with Aleš Česen and Luka Stražar, he successfully climbed Latok I in the Karakorum, Pakistan. They climbed three-quarters of the coveted North Ridge, before taking a line on the face in the upper section. The North Ridge of Latok is recognised as one of the last major lines in high-altitude mountaineering, and this was also the second-ever successful ascent of Latok I.


Holly Page

The fell, trail and sky runner had an amazing year in 2018 – racking up wins around the world in the Migu Run Skyrunner® World Series. Of the eight races she competed in, Holly won 6 of them, making her the Sky Classic Champion.

Holly has a reputation as the ‘hitchhiking skyrunner’, in this great interview, she says:

“Hitching is often the fastest way of getting somewhere – buses take ages, so it’s much more efficient to just stand by the road and hop in a passing car! What I love most of all is that you meet such a cross section of people and can really learn about the politics/history/culture of a place from the people who live there. I hitchhiked much of the length of South America a few years ago which was such a fantastic experience – nothing like chugging down through Patagonia drinking tea with an Argentine lorry driver (who thinks you’re French because the “British are Pirates, they stole the Falklands” signs are somewhat foreboding).”
