Leisure Studies 25(4): 455-467

The tension in rock climbing between technical aspects of performance that do not involve risk, and preparedness to put oneself in considerable and even life-threatening danger, is explored through an analysis of extreme gritstone climbing in the late 1990s recorded in a successful 'cult' film Hard Grit.
