Berghaus presents a special KMF Screening: The Last Great Climb

Berghaus, Alastair Lee and Leo Houlding present a special KMF screening of The Last Great Climb with anecdotes, unseen footage, gear prizes and plenty of behind-the-scenes tomfoolery.

The Last Great Climb tells the incredible story of Leo Houlding, Sean Leary, Jason Pickles and filmmaker Alastair Lee attempting an unclimbed route on the granite tower of Ulvetanna in Queen Maud Land, eastern Antarctica. Alone in the icy wilderness, conditions were good until the summit was in reach when, totally committed, the weather window closed and temperatures plummeted...

BEARD ALERT: In honour of the considerable amount of facial hair that increasingly becomes evident during the movie, you are encouraged to get beardy for the event. It's a 'bring a beard' special. Bring your own, or borrow someone else's. There will be Berghaus spot prizes for Best Beard, Best Supporting Beard etc etc so get growing now...
