    La voie Terray DVD

    La voie Terray

    Gilles Chappaz (2007)

    Terray. This name sounds like a challenge and evokes deep respect in each mountaineer’s memory. To everybody Lionel Terray will forever be the 'Conqueror of the useless', an example of a generous and mature mountaineer, far from egocentrism or ambition. Not only a pioneer and witness of mountaineering history, Terray is also remembered as a man and master more than an athlete. Forty years after the tragic death of this extraordinary mountaineer and guide, who loved to consider himself just 'a simple mountain dweller', his old friends and the youngest generation of mountaineers get together in this film to celebrate and remember his heritage.

    K2 - La montagne inachevée

    Jacques Ertaud (1980)

    Climbing K2 by its difficult and unconquered south-west ridge is the goal that Bernard Mellet set after two years of careful preparation. To overcome this ambitious achievement he has selected fourteen of the best french climbers of the moment. The team reached a height of 8400 meters, 200 meters below the summit. The route, called the 'magic line' was first climbed seven years later, in 1986, by a Polish team. The route was not successfully repeated until 2004, when Jordi Corominas, from a Catalan team, completed it.
