    Barbara Zangerl

    Barbara Zangerl

    Hannes Mair (2015)

    For many years Barbara Zangerl was known as one of the best female boulderers in the world, as one of the first women to climb class 8b. At the age of 19 years and at the top of this career a back injury - the end of the career? Eager and ambitious, Barbara started alpine climbing. With a completely new attitude to climbing she tries her hand at the hardest alpine routes: 'End of Silence' - first started by Thomas Huber, Stefan Glowacz's 'Des Kaisers neue Kleider' and 'Silbergeier' by Beat Kammerlander. Due to their challenge and beauty, all three extreme climbing routes are considered milestones in alpine climbing and have gone down in alpine history books worldwide as the 'Alpine Trilogy'.

    Tamara

    Christian Schmidt (2015)

    In 2012, Tamara Lunger saw the 8,611-meter summit of K2 for the first time. The sight of it was awe-inspiring, not least because K2 is considered the most dangerous of the 8,000-meter peaks: More than 80 climbers have lost their lives here. Still, in 2014, the 28-year-old made her way back to Pakistan with alpinist Nikolaus Gruber to take on the biggest challenge of her mountaineering career. Between fear, passion and happiness—this is a portrait of a woman who lives and loves extremes.

    Orbayu

    Mathieu Rivoire (2016)

    In Spain, in the Naranjo de Bulnes sector of the Picos de Europa National Park hide the Orbayus... One is the characteristic mist, or thin fog, that often settles and hangs on the slopes, soaking every little thing all the way through. The other is a daunting climb. At 2000 meters elevation it winds upward for 500 more in thirteen stunning pitches, a crux at 8c and overwhelming exposure. In spring 2014, Cedric Lachat and Nina Caprez made their attempt where, on the Orbayu, success hinges on an intricate and complex balance of the psyche.
