The Quarryman Film About Classic Hard Grit Route

The Quarrymen is a new film by Neil Hart that focuses on The Quarryman climb in the slate quarries above Llanberis in North Wales.

The film stars James Pearson and the first climber to send it, Johnny Dawes. The 1987 first ascent of the E8 7a was an historical ascent, which has been repeated a number of times, including by Pearson and Pearson’s partner Caroline Ciavaldini, who made the first female ascent in 2018.

    It wasn’t in Hard Grit or even on hard Grit. It was in Stone Monkey, and it’s on slate.
