Scottish winter. Home to seemingly endless spindrift avalanches pouring from above and excruciating hot aches whilst perched on a tiny belay ledge. You’ve got to love Scottish winter climbing and mountaineering. It’s even more enjoyable to watch from behind your screen, sat on your comfy sofa, cup of tea and biscuits in hand.
Distilled takes us through why Scottish winter climbing draws in so many climbers around the world. The film does such a good job of blending Andy’s backstory into the theme of Scottish climbing, with memories and shots from Andy on trips to Changabang and the Eiger.
Just to give you a little background on Andy, if you’ve not previously head of him before. Andy Cave has been on the cutting edge of the climbing scene ever since getting stuck into the Peak District Grit in his teens. Now an IFMGA mountain guide, author and all-round nice guy, Andy has put up new routes up around the world. However, it’s the tough nature of Scottish winter climbs is what draws Andy back and Distilled shows us why.
Shifting from the world of competition climbing to trad and Alpinism is no mean feat – you’ve got a whole new level of objective danger to take into consideration; from long runouts, rockfall and quickly changing weather patterns. Shifting Dreams follows the story of Caroline Ciavaldini as she makes this move into the vast world that is outdoor climbing.
Starting with Caroline’s early years as a competition climber, which involved intense commitment and focus on the single aspect of climbing. The film then moves onto how the death of Caroline’s mother plays an integral part on where she wants to take her climbing – to the wild and unexplored high-mountain peaks where she needs to learn how to get a grip of and handle her fears. Expect lots of stunning panning drone shots, as Caroline seemingly floats her away up the delicate arêtes and pinnacles found around the French Alps.
