Scroll down to see our list of the five most ridiculous climbing films of all time. What’s on your list?

IMDB Rating: 5.8/10

Year Released: 2000

IMDB Synopsis: A climber must rescue his sister on top of K2, one of the world’s
biggest mountains.

Rock Spot Synopsis: As if climbing K2 isn’t hard
enough (One in four will perish in the attempt) some knucklehead deemed it
necessary to bring up some nitroglycerin, you know, just in case. I’ve personally
replaced my chalk bag with a canister of nitroglycerin. I find that it makes my
hands feel dryer and gives me an edge with my explosive movements.

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=trp5hxov5tc

Guide to Climbing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxtg7raPDYo

���A��

IMDB Rating: 6.0/10

Year Released: 2002

IMDB Synopsis: Two professional solo
climbers form an uneasy partnership after a successful rescue mission grants them
the gift of a lifetime.


Rock Spot Synopsis:
On more than one occasion you will literally say the words,
“that’s not how that works.” You’ll throw your hands in the air and roll your
eyes multiple times during this film.

Trailer:

IMDB Rating: 6.3/10

Year Released: 1975

IMDB Synopsis: A classical art professor and collector, who doubles as a professional
assassin, is coerced out of retirement to avenge the murder of an old friend.

Rock Spot Synopsis: Of all of the movies in our
list this one has the least amount of climbing. It’s a Clint Eastwood film so
you can expect certain things: Clint Eastwood is the “good guy” and he will
kill a billion other guys to kill the “bad guy.”

Trailer:

,��Ė��

IMDB Rating: 6.3/10

Year Released: 1993

IMDB Synopsis: A botched mid-air heist results in suitcases full of cash being searched
for by various groups throughout the Rocky Mountains.

Rock Spot Synopsis: Cliffhanger is the love
child of Die Hard and rock climbing and as with most eighties-action movies, there
is no shortage of guns, explosions, screaming, or body-building. As per the
usual, Slick Sly is at it again with his rough and tumble ways, and with that
comes so many gear malfunctions that Black Diamond salesmen are still crying
themselves to sleep. That being said, Cliffhanger is probably the “best” movie
of the bunch because its ridiculousness is almost expected.
