New Hampshire Cragging: Climbing the Prow, Rescue on Cathedral Ledge


This well-edited five-minute film by Freddie Wilkinson showcases a "training day" on Cathedral Ledge in New Hampshire with Mark Richey, one of Wilkinson's two partners for the first ascent of Saser Kangri II in 2011. Highlights include footage of the classic Prow (5.11+) and a rescue from the summit of Cathedral. This short was made as part of Wilkinson's larger project: a feature film called "The Old Breed" documenting the dramatic first ascent of Saser Kangri II in northern India, then the second-highest unclimbed peak in the world. You can buy this film for $5 or rent it for $2, and also learn much more about the expedition, at
