Duration: 1 hour

As part of their preparation for BBC Scotland's Great Climb, top rock athletes Dave MacLeod and Tim Emmett devised the ultimate climbing challenge. They wanted to try five new extreme routes on five Hebridean islands in five days - a world first. Tides, weather, fatigue and the sheer difficulty of the climbs were all against them. These two films chart their frustrations and their triumphs.
