Trailer: Gripped—The Next Vertical Limit?


Movies never quite get rock climbing right—from the bolt guns of Cliffhanger, to the legendary opening sequence of Vertical Limit, to the batshit insane and amazing descent of Bollywood's Shivaay. The team behind Gripped understands the technical side of our sport better than the competition (barely—they did tie proper clove hitches), but the trailer is still very melodramatic and very funny.

If you're looking for alternatives to "climbing" and "climb on," may we suggest "the only way down is up" and "you lead this, or we die."

There is no official release date for the full film, but you can find more info at
