They have to make several attempts at one of them. Between two attempts one of them rests and almost falls asleep. At a certain point he loses control and falls. The climber suddenly jumps up disturbed by his dream in which the desire to fly up in the sky is combined with death and failure, the fall of no return.

    Karl Maria Herrligkoffer - Visionär und Wegbegleiter

    Kathrin Denk (2016)

    Karl Maria Herrligkoffer is regarded as the most important German organizer of eight-thousand-meter expeditions after the Second World War - Karl Maria Herrligkoffer (1916-1991). The Munich doctor and psychologist made it possible for mountaineers such as Hermann Buhl, Anderl Mannhardt, Toni Kinshofer, Reinhold Messner, Michl Dacher, Sigi Hupfauer, Hans Engl and many others to realize their dream of climbing eight-thousanders. However, several times after the successes on the mountain, there were disputes between the expedition leader and individual participants. Above all, the bitter dispute with Reinhold Messner after the Nanga-Parbat-Expedition in 1970, during which Günther Messner had died, caused Herrligkoffer a considerable damage to his image.

    Eiger Nordwand

    Eiger Nordwand

    Gerhard Baur (2000)

    The two young Allgäu climbers Holger Wendel and Thomas Burger enter the infamous Eiger North Wall without informing anyone. A sudden fall in the weather in the middle of the wall puts them in an icy inferno: lightning, avalanches and cold. On a small heel, they wait nine days for the ever-closer death. Gerhard Baur, who accidentally discovers the tent of the two mountaineers left at the foot of the wall, sets a rescue operation in motion, as if by a miracle both survive. In his film, Baur reconstructs the real events.
