The Telluride Film festival wrapped up earlier this week, and British flick WideBoyz picked up the prestigious Charlie Fowler Award. The film, above, looks at the strange sub-culture of offwidth crack climbing. It follows two Brits, Pete Whittaker and Tom Randall as they journey to the US in search of the world's hardest offwidth — Century Crack.

The film has already picked up top prizes at last year's Kendal Mountain Film Festival. The Charlie Fowler award, named in memory of the local climber who died in an avalanche in China's Sichuan province in 2006, is the latest honour for the film.

The 35th Telluride Film festival featured four days of documentary films, presentations and talks on subjects that ranged from fracking to circumnavigating the world on only human power.
