Only Live Once takes in two events reaching their exciting final stages; first up it is indoor action from Stuttgart's Porsche Arena where the worlds best bouldering climbers are at the Annual Adidas Rock stars. And we reach a real clash of the biggest talents in the final head to head at the Kimberley Diamond Cup.
Some places you enjoy and some places you fall in love with. After a first trip to the popular “Rocklands”, worldcup competitor climber Mélissa Le Neve is back to her favourite bouldering spot in the world to do some worldclass rock climbing. Discover what makes climbing in this South African climbing Mecca such an addictive experience.
After their success climbing the world’s hardest offwidth, the Wide Boyz, Pete Whittaker and Tom Randall, embark on their next crack climbing mission. This time their sights are set on the thinner end of the crack climbing spectrum. Their goal is the mighty Cobra Crack in Squamish BC, considered to be the hardest finger crack in the world. First climbed by Canadian ‘rock star’ Sonnie Trotter after battling it out with Didier Berthod, the route hit the media spotlight in the film First Ascent.
What happens when some extreme sports people enter into a dialogue with some jazz musicians on the face of a rock? Andreas Pichler documents a project from the South Tyrol Jazz Festival, Alto Adige, in which climbers and tightrope walkers find their own unique rhythm. If you are not fully concentrated, if you are not present, you have lost. This rule is valid for both musicians and climbers. In an extraordinary symbiosis, jazz musicians accompany climbers and slack liners on their tours.
Every climbing reward comes at the cost of a potential risk, but when you are a climbing pioneer, driven by the unknown and unexpected, you are willing to risk whatever it takes for the chance to find the perfect first ascent line. This is a story of exploration and discovery, a journey of friendship and solitude, a quest to fuel an obsessive passion. Starring Paul Robinson, Jimmy Webb, Daniel Woods, Chris Sharma and Niky Ceria.
