Tent Bound in Devil’s Bay

2011 USA / Duration: 8 mins Directed by: Tim Kemple

It was a good idea in theory. Climbers Hazel Findlay, Alex Honnold, James Pearson and Mark Synnott struck out for a remote bay in Newfoundland to establish new trad routes on a massive granite wall that juts 1,200 feet out of the ocean. After who knows how much planning and an arduous five-day journey, they arrived to find spectacular scenery, but climbing was swiftly shut down by relentless, cold rainfall. They were so close. And then they were stuck in their cell-like tents to wait out the rain and wonder whether it was all worth it. Tent Bound in Devil’s Bay, a short film by Camp 4 Collective, highlights what happens when a trip challenges expectations and spirit — until the clouds break.
