Synopsis: Leading all round climber Neil Gresham seems to be the fine wine of UK climbing; at 50 he realizes his hardest traditional project Lexicon. The steep and blank headwall of Pavey Ark’s East Gully in the Lake District has a smattering of tiny holds and notably no protection. A successful ascent would rank it as one of the most significant.
Neil is also a leading force in training and mental preparation for climbing. In this Pavey project he found the perfect platform to apply many of his latest techniques and set about his toughest and most focused training campaign.
The hardest moves wait at the very top of the line: dropping these low percentage moves means a potential 80ft fall into the lower vertical section. Strap in for the ride in a film that packs a classic cocktail of big lobs, hard climbing and the moment of truth as Neil completes ‘the climb of his life’.
