More than a little reminiscent of how 1960s caped crusaders Batman and Robin would scale buildings, only significantly more vertical, here's climber Paul Pritchard on Tasmania's Totem Pole, eighteen years after a catastrophic accident left him partially paralysed. He's about to find out if he has recovered enough to finally complete his climb. Doing It Scared is an 11-minute cut of Pritchard's journey, which forms part of the 'blue programme' at this year's Banff Mountain Film Festival tour. Together with six other shorts, take it in on the big screen at the Town Hall at 2.30pm on March 4. Or opt for the equally awe-inspiring 'red programme' at 7.30pm. You can also find the eye-boggler in Malvern's Forum Theatre on March 2 and 3.
