This film documents the first free ascent of Bongo Bar in arctic Norway by Scottish climber Dave MacLeod. Bongo Bar is a 400m route on the granite north face of Blamann. This face hosts many long hard aid routes and only in recent years to have climbers begun to see the potential for these routes to be climber free. The film follows MacLeod as he prepares to make the ascent. It combines actuality footage taken of the first ascent, both via long lens and on wall cameras, with 'handy cam' video shot by the climbers themselves.

The world of off width crack climbing is a strange sub culture rumoured to be dominated by knuckle dragging, bar brawling dirt bags! The climbing is tough, painful and bloody. Two climbers from England, Pete Whittaker and Tom Randall, set out to explore this world and climb the worlds hardest off widths. They complete a brutal two year training regime, mostly spent hanging upside down in a suburban Sheffield basement, before embarking on a tour of the USA. The tour culminates in the first ascent of the ultimate off width test piece, Century Crack, the worlds hardest off width.

It's not the most difficult route in the world; it's simply the most difficult 'sports' route that I have climbed. It has a long story which began when for the first time I asked myself what the places where the sun set every evening might be like. Eternity is hidden up there, in a solitary forgotten landscape in these mountains, small and 'vertically old fashioned' halfway between this place where I was born and the places where I have lived': with these words and the images of the rock face he is climbing, Maurizo Manolo Zanollatalks about his motivation and emotions on rediscovering a route that he identified many years before but which he had long believed impossible for him to face.
