    Piedra de luz Vod

    Piedra de luz

    Sebastián Álvaro (2010)

    Gasherbrum IV, standing at 7,925 meters, is probably the most beautiful mountain in the Karakorum, the only one capable of putting the majesty of K2 into the shade. It was first climbed on 6 August 1958 by Italian mountaineers Walter Bonatti and Carlo Mauri. Fifty years after that great achievement, a team of friends, Alberto Iñurrategui, José Carlos Tamayo, Mikel Zabala, Juan Vallejo, and Ferran Latorre, decide to tackle this colossal monument to inaccessibility. It is the end of a long journey and the start of a great story of friendship in the mountains.

    Finis Terrae

    Fulvio Mariani (1999)

    Walter Bonatti travels to Patagonia to retrace the extraordinary story of the Salesian explorer Alberto Maria De Agostini and his titanic exploration work of the lands and mountains of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego. Recovering photos and actual footage of the De Agostini Expeditions, the film, entirely shot in Tierra del Fuego and Patagonia in 1999, is a real journey into the lands of myth, and proposes, in a curious perspective that combines present and past, a fantastic sequence of some of the most spectacular places and savages of the American regions of the far South.

    La conquista del Buckland

    La conquista del Buckland

    Carlo Mauri (1966)

    In 1966 it was Carlo Mauri who again organized an expedition of the Ragni di Lecco (Mauri, Ferrari, Alippi, Giudici, Machetto and Pirovano) for the ascent of Monte Buckland. On February 6th the summit was reached. Their route departed from Bahía Encanto through the western slope of the mountain, up a narrow gorge to the glacier at high altitude and from there up the southwest face leading to the summit. A huge crack in the glacier would have stopped them just before the goal, if Ferrari had not discovered, after a long search, a small passage to the wall of the summit, which they covered in a southerly direction up to the highest point.
