    One of the best all-round climbers in the world seeks to take traditional rock climbing to the next level of difficulty -- and, inevitably, danger. The steep and intimidating rock face protecting the seaward flanks of historic Dumbarton Castle in Scotland is the scene of Dave MacLeod’s very personal battle. The film reveals the dedication, frustrations and sheer physical and mental effort that goes into MacLeod’s climbing. Relationships become strained as he struggles to cope with the difficulty and seriousness of the endeavour. Doggedly, even obsessively, he keeps returning to his "ultimate" project.

    A sobering film by Claire MacLeod of her husband Dave climbing one of the world's hardest trad routes. Dave’s idea of the perfect climb is one that has beautiful movement on rock, set on the north face of Ben Nevis in stunning scenery. If he could become the first climber to climb "Echo Wall", it would be possibly the hardest and most dangerous rock climb in the world. The film takes us on Dave's journey of preparation for this huge challenge and explores his personal justification for the enormous risk to his life and the potential effects on his wife Claire, who films his eventual climb of the route, where the slightest slip of a hand or foot would mean death.

    In August 2007, Dave MacLeod wrote: "Yesterday was the scariest day of my life, and the end of the scariest ten days of my life. The impending lead of my 'Great Climb' project on Hell’s Lum crag was hanging over me like a guillotine. It's the most dangerous lead I've ever done... falling off from the crux or above would have meant death." "To Hell and Back" is an intimate and frightening portrait of the consequences of one of the world’s best climbers becoming obsessed with a new route in the heart of the Cairngorm mountains.
