"E11 TELLS THE story of Dave MacLeod's first ascent of what some call the world's hardest route, Rhapsody. It is the first E11, a grade that in this case means 30 feet of 5.14b/c above an RP. The film is an impressive collection of footage, expertly edited to show the process of working a route at the threshold of one man's physical and mental limits.

E11 follows MacLeod throughout the year it takes him to send Rhapsody, an extension at the gently overhanging Dumbarton Rock, Scotland. The film could've been mostly about the sickness of the route, but instead, it's about the person behind it.

At its heart, E11 is a profile, a genuine rendering of Dave MacLeod."
