Try "Subzero" for seriously made for TV cheesy stuff with climbing scenes...
I've never seen a good climbing film yet, if we are considering entertainment value.
Oh, I forgot, The Eiger Sanction.

Did you see that one from last year, 'A Lonely Place to Die', set in the Highlands? Risible.
The film 'Descent' beats even VL's backpack bombs for inexplicably contrived plot point - I never was sure why they felt the need to take ice axes on a caving trip.
Don't know, but maybe the extra heft of the axes helps explain the weight saving measures of cutting their wetsuits down innaa slightly more revealing stylee? No?
Eiger Sanction was actually a good movie (can't remember much of the climbing as I wasn't into climbing then).
K2 takes the cake for me! Good cheesy 80 movie, and its worht watching just for the fluorescent pink crampons and other funky coloured gear!
Some of you lot are just weird. Cliffhanger is a fantastic film - by definition really, because Sylvester Stallone's in it. It's also got one of the best baddies ever:
"Qualen: Do you know what real love is, Kristel? Kristel: No. Qualen: [whispers in her ear] Sacrifice. [shoots her]"
The only downside, obviously, is when Pa Walton gets killed.
"It's psychosomatic. You need a lobotomy. I'll get a saw."
I watched Nordwand last night. Hadn't seen it before, thought it was very good. Cliffhanger is a fantastic film - by definition really, because Sylvester Stallone's in it. Stop or My Mum Will Shoot.
