THE 6 FILMS


WOODS N PEAKS

Kakking off in the footsteps of a legend!

20 years ago Bobby Woods pulled off a dramatic feat of endurance - climbing 3 of the Western Cape’s sheerest peaks within 24 hours, without equipment, and alone. The unearthing of a film made about the undertaking inspires 2 of today’s local mountain hot-shots to step up and investigate modern speed-climbing techniques to see if the 20 year-old challenge is really as monumental as it sounds.
