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.

IMDB Rating: 5.0/10

Year Released: 2000

IMDB Synopsis: A troubled teenager joins a group of rock climbers and is quickly forced
into a death-defying adventure.

Rock Spot Synopsis: Before this movie ends you’ll
be hoping that all of the main characters die just so they don’t pass off
unsafe climbing habits onto other viewers.

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.
