On the west coast of Sweden, in the north of Bohuslän county, lies one of Europe’s most beautiful and best-kept climbing secrets, with its granite walls, square-cut dihedrals, razor-sharp arêtes and soaring cracks. The film retraces the story of this climber’s paradise with additional shots from the repertoire of Leo Houlding and Neil Gresham. It ranges from the first 1970s bandana-wearing climbers to the athletes that are pushing the boundaries of this discipline to new extremes. It dwells on the reasons that drive these athletes to compete against the perils of nature.
