The truth behind the Tom Randall, the man who champions pain and suffering in an age when everyone else is being kind to themselves.
Claire Carter Writer, Film Officer for Kendal Mountain Festival, 'Creative Consultant'.
Tom Randall is a modern day institution in the world of British climbing. Well known for his acquired taste for offwidth crack routes, Tom consistently sets himself the highest standards and the hardest lines. For Tom, climbing is all consuming, but this hasn't always been the case. In ‘Obsession’ Tom provides a unique insight into his formative years spent in a world entirely different to the one we associate him with now, and how he copes with conflicting priorities that are fundamental to his continued happiness and ambitious drive.
