    Making-of 'Am Limit' - The point of no return

    Pepe Danquart (2007)

    Making-of of the documentary 'Am Limit’, where the Huber brothers, Alex and Thomas, try to beat the speed record of the ‘Nose’, a 1.000 meters high climbing route in the granite wall of El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. The filming crew, composed of expert mountaineers, had to spend some days shooting betwenn eight and twelve hours on the wall, exposed to the sun and the elements. Every camera position was calculated by Pepe Danquart, the film director, anticipating every climber’s move, and the team used between 3 and 4 kilometers of fixed ropes. About ten people have been constantly in the wall, and more than 30 more were standing up at the summit or below to assist.
