The Last Great Climb premieres in London

The world premiere of Alastair Lee’s new film, The Last Great Climb, is to showcase in London’s West End next month.

Set in the mountains of Queen Maud Land, Antarctica, the 2013 climbing documentary follows the story of British speed climber Leo Houlding, big wall expert Jason Pickles and climber Sean ‘Stanley’ Leary as they attempt to make the first ascent of the technically demanding Ulvetanna Peak (2931m), via its North East ridge. The Last Great Climb details the history of Ulvetanna, thought to be one of the world’s most remote summits upon its discovery in 1994, and includes interviews with Sir Chris Bonington, and Norweigan climbers Ivar Tolleffsen and Robert Caspersen who were the first to explore the area nine years ago.

The hour-long film will be shown at Leicester Square’s Vue Cinema on the evening of November 4, with film-maker Alastair Lee, Leo Houlding and the entire expedition crew in attendance. Doors open at 6:30pm for free drinks and Berghaus giveaways before the film starts at 8pm. A short Q&A session with Houlding, Lee and Doug Scott will be held after the screening. Tickets cost £20.
