Synopsis: Moonflower joins top British alpinists Jon Bracey and Matt Helliker as they honor their late friend Jules Cartwright by following his original vision, making a stunning and formidable new line on one of the World’s biggest alpine faces, Mt Hunter’s incredible North Buttress; The Moonflower.

Climbing the steepest and coldest section of the buttress; Bracey and Helliker approach exhaustion in an effort to complete the line before the increasingly freezing conditions irrevocably turn against them. The fruits of their efforts result in ‘The Cartwright Connection’ Ca 6000ft, Alaskan grade 6 (M6, AI6, 5.8, A2).

The adventure is filmed by the climbers themselves providing a unique insight into cutting edge alpinism. Adventure cameraman David Reeves contributes to the cinematic experience with his stunning mountain time lapses and aerial footage. The film is produced by award winning director, Alastair Lee and conveys every frighting, grueling and hilarious moment combined with the poignant beauty of the Alaskan wilderness.
