Two Scottish climbers on the cutting-edge of winter alpinism, an ice climbing trip to the Canadian Rockies, and an encounter with one very protective bear. While descending Mount Wilson in the dark, Greg Boswell and Nick Bullock were attacked by a grizzly – managing to escape but not without injuries and an epic story to tell. Warning: Program contains coarse language and graphic images.

Presentation followed by films in competition.
