Our Judges say:
A film of heroes that doesn't disappoint. Eric has such a reputation and going to Patagonia with Ioan has made a film that works on many levels. Very memorable film.
Everyone loves Eric.

78 year old legendary Welsh climber Eric Jones is joined on a trip to Patagonia by Ioan Doyle to revisit and relive past triumphs and squeeze in a few new adventures. Copa packs in tea on the 'South Col', Welsh speaking gauchos, life saving fifi hooks, solo epics on the Eiger, a love of cats, BASE jumping off waterfalls and a near 1,000ft rock tower in the Patagonian desert. An eclectic mix of melancholy and humour laced with an unwavering spirit of adventure.
