Our Judges say:

Local film makers, local spotters, local grit. A turkey look into the Boulder problem, Voyager at Burbage South (5km away from where you are now)

A techy Irish boulderer’s quest to conquer a famous problem on the grit.

very nice little bouldering film focusing on one problem

Paul Hodgson Music Judge

This film follows Irish climber David Fitzgerald, who after taking up the sport only 5 years ago, travelled to the Peak District to try the hardest bouldering problems on grit. After sending Deliverance (7B+) and The Ace (8B) David set his sights on Voyager sit start (8B+). Voyager was set by Ben Moon in 2006 and had only been climbed by two others (Niccolò Ceria and Ned Feehally) before David. It is widely regarded as the hardest route on grit. David was filmed in the Peaks and in his home city of Dublin over the course of two months in spring 2017, while working on the route and training indoors. David is sponsored by MoonClimbing.
