Sender Films — THE SHARP END

Sender Films’ latest — “The Sharp End” — is a vividly-filmed and heart-pounding hour of rock climbing, alpine and ice ascents, slack-lining and BASE jumping — plus a few creative amalgams of all the aforementioned gravity-based disciplines. Honestly, if you’re a climber or not, this film will thrill. Scenes range from free solos by Steph Davis (in Colorado and Utah), to Dean Potter high-lining hundreds of feet above the desert (with backup parachute), to an obscure knot-protected, chalkless sandstone spire climbing in the Czech Republic. Footage of wing-suit BASE jumping in Italy with Chris McNamara and a chest-mounted video camera is beyond stunning.
