Alan Hinkes is the first and only British mountaineer to climb all of the world’s fourteen 8000m mountains back in 2005 making him one of less than 40 climbers who’ve bagged the full set.
Fast forward to 2017 and Alan’s extraordinary story will be brought to the big screen in a stunning new biopic produced by leading outdoor filmmaker Terry Abraham, and sponsored by Fjallraven.
Here’s the official teaser…
A meeting of two true outdoor legends, Terry’s new film will document Alan’s life-long love affair with the hills and mountains, both in the UK and further afield. Starting at school in Northallerton, Yorkshire, Alan’s passion for the mountains has never waned.
If you cut him in half it says ‘mountain man’ and he loves the fells and crags of Britain as much as the Himalaya. As well as experiencing success and climbing difficult, dangerous peaks, Alan has had a few close shaves and near death experiences, many recounted in his book ‘8000 Metres – Climbing The World’s Highest Mountains’.
