Redpoint: climbing a route without falling after having practiced it on previous occasions. Even with practice a route can take days, months, or even years to redpoint. Along the way it can consume the mind of a climber and drive him nearly insane with frustration. Steve McClure, one of Britain's finest climbers, knows the peculiar pressures and vexations of redpointing better than most. He finds the nightmare line of his dreams at Malham Cove in Yorkshire, England. In Euro climber-ese it's an 8a+ route followed by a hard boulder problem (Font 8a), followed by another, short, hard route (8a+ or 8b). Or, as McClure translates: "It's flippin' hard." Follow the British legend as he struggles and obsesses over the project for nearly a year. By the time it's over you'll be almost as relieved as he is. Steve McClure Attempts to Redpoint the UK's Hardest Route | HARDXS from Slackjaw Film, Ep. 12
