Britain’s top rock climbers Jerry Moffatt and Ben Moon take you on a roller-coaster road trip from the classic gritstone crags of the UK’s Peak District to the Mecca of world bouldering, Fontainebleau in France. With guest appearances from German rock legend Kurt Albert, Britain’s Sean Myles and French master Marc Le Menestrel, this is the real thing!

Released on VHS format in 1996 the award-wining movie The Real Thing was the first feature length bouldering movie and played a large part in the popularization of bouldering. Re-released on DVD format for the first time it now includes a bonus retrospective commentary from Ben and Jerry. 13 years on it still remains a classic.

"The original and still the best bouldering film ever made." Tyler Landman.
