Alan Hinkes

Alan Hinkes


Britain’s most successful mountaineer, Yorkshireman Alan Hinkes is one of the UK’s unsung sporting heroes. One of just a handful of people worldwide who have conquered the 8000-metre peaks – the world’s collection of 14 highest mountains which represent the pinnacle (pun intended) of mountaineering achievement and endurance, Hinkes is a playful 63-year-old with the spirit and energy of a 21-year-old. Here for the first time he is given a true testament on film by perhaps the UK’s greatest outdoors photographer/filmmaker, Terry Abraham (BBC hits ‘Life of a Mountain: Blencathra’ and ‘Life of a Mountain: Scafell Pike’). Terry’s intimate portrait captures the spirit and ambition of Hinkes the man and Hinkes the hero, not only telling his story, but also conveying his fierce passion for the great outdoors. Alan’s towering achievements are set amidst a dazzling and engaging global travelogue, which takes in his beloved Yorkshire and captures the geography and cultures of Kathmandu and Norway along the way. A charming, funny and fascinating study of an older adventurer’s undying passion and refusal to grow old gracefully, ALAN HINKES – THE FIRST BRITON TO CLIMB THE WORLD’S HIGHEST MOUNTAINS is a beautifully made study of an old-school adventurer.
