En compétition


With The Pinnacle Club celebrating their centenary, this film celebrates the success of a group of their earlier members who took part in an expedition in the 1960’s to a remote part of Nepal, and were the first ever people to submit and map a region of peaks in the Kanjiroba Himal. A place they called Jagdula.

6 women took part in the journey – with some driving overland from the UK to India, before hiking through the foothills of the Himalayas to their destination.

The two remaining members of the group recount their tale from their homes in north Wales. 

The film celebrates women’s climbing and shows what’s possible with little more than a dream. Featuring original archive material from the expedition.

Bande annonce

The choice of the festival

The Pinnacle Club is legendary in the UK. An all-women’s mountaineering club founded over a century ago, in 1921. Two now elderly ladies reminisce about a daring expedition to western Nepal. Some travelled by car from England, to explore and map a region still little known today. With English humour, the ladies recount their adventures and the joyful feminism that fuelled (and still fuels) the famous club. A jubilant film that pays tribute to these pioneers and to the spirit of British adventure that we love so much.
