Making of the film 'Le pilier de la solitude', a film that recreates the historical ascent of the southwest pillar of the Drus (the Bonatti Pillar), in the Mont Blanc Massif, by Walter Bonatti in 1955. A 800 meters high vertical wall that Bonatti did solo over the course of six days with provisions for only three days. In the film, the notorious swiss alpinist Michel Vaucher plays the role of Bonatti. Unlike the film Le Pilier de la solitude, which was shot in black and white, the making of was shot in beautiful color.
