Climber Marks Film Festival Highpoint For Second Time

Highpoint Professional Services' leading climber Dave Birkett recently scooped first prize in the 'People's Choice' award at the prestigious Kendal Mountain Film Festival for the second year running.
Last year, Dave starred in the film 'Set in Stone' - a biography featuring Dave's hardest climbs.
This year, Dave was one of three climbers featured in the film 'Psyche' - a look at true cutting edge adventure.
'Psyche' beat big-budget runner-up 'The Beckoning Silence' by just four votes.
You can see clips from these amazing climbing films at:
  1. Psyche
  2. Cam Crag
  3. Set In Stone
Highpoint Professional Services offer locations, action, models and safety for all outdoor activities and mountain environments.
