Echoes from the Crags

MHT have just added another interview to its oral history project – Echoes from the Crag with Leo Dickinson, an adventure film maker who filmed the solo ascent of Eric Jones on the North Face of the Eiger as well as ballooning over Everest, to name but a few.  Leo shares some wonderful anecdotes and stories of time spent with key figures in mountaineering as well as his work in adventure film making.

Founder of the Kendal Mountain Film Festival and SteepEdge John Porter comments “Leo is a rare star – the first person to combine extreme adventure with creative film production in a lifestlye that fed both his own rat and gave others a chance to expand their own adventures – e.g. Eric Jones. He is an internationally recognised name in film and extreme sports, but as with all true adventurers, most of what he is done is below the media radar”.
