Dave MacLeod: The 24/8 (c) Kevin Woods

Established by Dave MacLeod on the 19th March 2018, the '24/8' might be one of the hardest all-round climbing challenges around; an 8A boulder, 8a sport route, E8 trad route, VIII,8 winter route and 8 Munros, all in under 24 hours.

Dave MacLeod was first inspired to visit Magic Wood in 2012 after watching footage of Tyler Landman doing the second ascent of Practice of the Wild. At Font 8c it is one the hardest boulder problems in the world and on Dave’s first visit it proved to be just beyond him.

St John's head on the Island of Hoy is a wild and remote 1150 foot sea cliff. 40 years after the first ascent, one of the World's top climbers, Dave MacLeod, sets out to climb the cliff in a single day, finishing with a new desperately hard final pitch up the headwall.

Im Sommer 2014 wagt Dave MacLeod eine neue Route an der Westlichen Zinne in den Dolomiten. Eine ganze schöne Herausforderung - für jeden, zu jeder Zeit. Auch für Dave war es einer der größten Herausforderungen in seiner Kletterkarriere überhaupt.

In early 2014, Calum Muskett and Dave McLeod set out for Patagonia to repeat David Lama's free Compressor Route on Cerro Torre. With pitches up to 8a and bold, committing climbing high on the mountain, it is probably one of the hardest alpine climbs in the world.

Dave MacLeod is without doubt one of the world's top all-round climbers - renowned for his dedication and single minded training. Many hours of gripping footage document Dave working on his latest projects, cranking hard and succeeding on seemingly impossible routes. But what about Dave the man?

From bold trad to sketchy rime to hard sport, Black Diamond athlete Dave MacLeod has something of an obsession with first ascents in his native Scotland-a land not known for its ideal climbing weather. A little sleet and rain, however, has done little to dampen Dave's passion for scouring the island for new climbs. His latest FA, Fight The Feeling, is an interesting tale of an FA legacy being carried on from one generation of climbers to the next.

A new short film about Lochaber-based climber Dave MacLeod is being produced with an aim of showing it at mountain festivals around the world. Video production team Wojtek Kozakiewicz and Lukasz Warzecha shot Mr MacLeod bouldering in Switzerland.

Und noch ein Video aus Großbritannien. Wieder geht es um eine wilde Kletterei, die sowohl psychisch als auch physisch den Protagonisten Dave McLeod bis zum Letzten fordert. Eingebetten in den historischen Kontext der technischen Erstbegehung wagt er sich an die erste freie Begehung dieses britischen Big Walls an sandigem, brüchigem Fels. Der Trailer macht Lust auf mehr...

David Lama ist die Erstbegehung des Lunag Ri gelungen – und das auch noch im Alleingang! Am 25. Oktober 2018 stand der österreichische Extrembergsteiger als erster Mensch auf dem Gipfel des 6907 Meter hohen Himalaja-Riesen.
