Director Statement

Yorkshires own William Cecil Slingsby was a British mountaineer who pioneered these lands back in 1872. So to make this film in Lyngen Alps was to honour his bold mountaineering ascents over 150 years ago. There aren't many documents out there about his heroics, so i thought i could pay tribute to Mr Slingsby through an adventure of my own and try to bring it to the big screen nation wide.

Thank you William Cecil Slingsby. Your legend lives on!
