Brazilian Line – A new route big wall rock climbing adventure in Brazil

Author(s): Rob Johnson

In 2018 I joined four British climbers on a new route mission to Brazil and I made this film. It was screened at the Best of Kendal in the same year and has since gone on to play to sell out venues on the Brit Rock film tour as well as mountain festivals around the world. “A maverick bunch of Brits go big wall hunting in Brazil. Lead by pioneering legend Mike ‘Twid’ Turner accompanied by Steve Long who invite some youth on the trip in the form of the super strong James Taylor and Angus Kille (just climbed Indian Face!). The team head for the giant monolith of Pedra Baiana dreaming of a new line on perfect rock. From the outset the plan begins to unravel with fuel blockages, wasp attacks, a shortage of equipment and time all pinning back progress in this spectacular, insightful and charming film.”
