This Is The Enormous Effort That Went Into Making Climbkhana

A behind-the-scenes video shows what went into making Ken Block's Climbkhana film, which was shot during three visits to Pikes Peak spaced months apart

Remind me later

As was probably apparent when you watched it for the first time, making Ken Block’s ‘Climbkhana’ video involved more than just strapping a few GoPros to the 1400bhp ‘Hoonicorn’. A lot more, in fact.

This new behind-the-scenes video shows the incredible effort involved in making the film. The crew had to go to Pikes Peak on three separate occasions spaced months apart, with filming interrupted by crazy changes in weather and mechanical issues. Hence why we were waiting so long for the final video to come out…

In the behind-the-scenes video, Block describes the driving he had to do as “some of the sketchiest stuff I’ve ever done,” and yes, that moment with two wheels on the dirt is mentioned, which he calls “the gnarliest moment I’ve ever had in my entire career.”
