Where are you currently getting your mountain inspiration from? Are the walls in your house lined with photos and paintings of stunning peaks? Your social media feeds endlessly presenting you with trails and skylines to add to the list of places to go once lockdown has ended? We're here to add to that by giving you five more films to keep your inspiration levels up. Enjoy the watch.

Climbing Mount Damavand - Iran's Highest Mountain 🗻

A ski-mountaineering team from the UK set out to climb Iran's highest mountain, Mount Damavand (5610 m). The team is lead by Shirin Shabestari, an Iranian woman now resident in London. As the team ascend the mountain the film examines the pivotal role mountaineering played in Shirin's upbringing and discover just how much this summit means to her. 

 

Mary-Ann Ochota tackles Skye's infamous Inaccessible Pinnacle 🧗

Aka the In Pinn. Just seeing a photo of it is enough to inspire you to swing a rope over your shoulders and book yourself a train to the Isle of Skye. Join Mary-Ann and Mountain Leader Lou Reynolds on the Cuillin Ridge up the hardest of all Scottish Munros.

 

Britain's Mountain Challenges: Aonach Eagach scrambling 🌫️

Take a trip along the stunning ridge of Aonach Eagach in Glen Coe, Scotland. The Aonach Eagach is a serious grade two scramble. The ridge is long, committing and extremely exposed. Sound like your thing? We also wrote an article about how to scramble it

 

Miles Away 🏃‍♀️

This is a mesmerising mountain piece. Alicia Hudelson runs through the Swiss mountains and the Serra de Montsant, Catalunya and it looks like heaven. Miles Away placed 3rd in the BMC TV Women in Adventure film competition 2016 and you can check out more spectacular women-led films here.

 

The Bothy Project  🏚️

Four artists head to the remote Scottish bothy of Shenavall in an evocative call to the wilderness. Temporarily cut-off from the busyness of normal life (sound familiar?) filmmaker Jen Randall follows wild-swimming-video-artist Natasha Brooks, acclaimed Sheffield artist Tessa Lyons and poet Claire Carter as they explore the surrounding wilderness. This is a stunningly shot, evocative call of the wilderness that will inspire you to head north and find your own adventures (as soon as we can).
