    A bit of a rough DVD

    A bit of a rough

    Christoph Frutiger (2010)

    Mammut climbing team moves to the Peak District to test themselves in this famous climbing area located close to Sheffield where in the 80s and 90s, local climbing legends such as Jonny Dawes opened some of the most difficult routes on the island. The team will find quite short routes, but without many belay points. This causes their moves to be even more demanding. But Gritstone is Gritstone and climbers like Anna Stoehr, Alex Johnson, David Lama, Céderic Lachat, Magnus Midtbø and Jakob Schubert enjoy the feeling of the rough, compact sandstone underneath their fingers and to try out the amazing variety of routes.

    High Spirits

    Bernhard Stern (2016)

    David Lama and Conrad Anker became the first expedition ever to reach the headwall of Lunag Ri, a 6907 meters high mountain located at the border of Nepal and Tibet. The Austrian-American rope team gave everything to be the very first to reach the untouched summit. But in the end, due to freezing cold temperatures and strong wind the only reasonable option was to retreat. Lama said: '...we still have our fingers. They will surely be useful on our next attempt, which we have set our sights on for next year.'

    Hold Fast

    Jim Aikman (2017)

    While making a summit attempt to an unclimbed peak in Nepal in 2016, Conrad Anker suffered a heart attack. With his climbing partner, David Lama, able to do little more than look on, Anker self-rescued from 20,000 feet. It marked the end of his long and storied career as a high-altitude mountaineer, but not his passion to climb. In Hold Fast, Anker returns to one of his favorite big wall climbs — El Cap, in Yosemite National Park. With him is Alex Wildman, an ardent amateur climber and close friend. The good news is that Wildman is a cardiac nurse. But he has never before climbed a big wall. And he has a serious health concern of his own.

    David Lama - Zurück zu den Wurzeln

    Martin Hanslmayr (2017)

    For a long time, the Austrian climber David Lama wished to turn to Nepal. The family visit of his ancestors was only one part of the travel. The second reason was – what else could it be? – a mountain. The first ascent of the 6907m high Lunag Ri. This combination of a completely untouched summit and a challenging climbing part is all but commonplace. The Lunag Ri is very difficult on all its sides. Already several expeditions have tried their luck there. Together with the legendary climber Conrad Anker, David sets off to the highest, still unclimbed mountain in Nepal.

    There are only a few climbers who are able to move as fast and as safe in steep ice falls, hardly anyone undertakes as many difficult solos as he does. The small borderline between performance and suffering on the one side, and responsibility for himself and his family on the other, is still a challenge for Markus Pucher. In the last years, the Carinthian athlete has developed to be one of the best all-round mountaineers of present time.
