    Por qué escalamos

    Benjamín Soto (2015)

    Pursuing their dreams and passion, sometimes far into what some people would call insane, this short film tells the story of why these athletes do what they do, what is in rock-climbing that moves so many of them so deeply that is no longer only a sport, but a way of life. The film tries to respond to all this through the testimony of a group of Mexican climbers. An advertising-style film produced by Alta Vertical and Zenith Adventure Media.

    Himalayan Ice Vod

    Himalayan Ice

    Ari Novak (2019)

    In December 2018, alpinists Ari Novak and Karsten Delap set out for India to explore one of the most remote valleys in the Indian Himalaya with local climber Karn Kowshik. Their goal was to meet with the indigenous population of the Spiti Valley and try to support local ice climbing. What they found was perhaps the biggest treasure trove of unclimbed ice in all the Himalaya. Himalayan Ice tells the history-making story of their journey to put up 9 first ascents and start an ice climbing movement by the local population. From their journey to the valley along the most treacherous road on earth to walking amongst Snow Leopards, the expedition was anything but expected.

    Slaydies

    Tara Kerzhner (2018)

    Slaydies /slādēz/ noun – Ladies who slay, otherwise known as female climbers who crush while bringing as much joy to climbing as they do progress for women in the sport. In the fall of 2017, three pro climbers and two videographers traveled to Mallorca to sport climb, deep-water solo, and experience the overwhelming psych of having an all-female crew. Although Emily Harrington, Paige Claassen, and Margo Hayes, all grew up in the climbing scene near Boulder, Colorado, they had never done a climbing trip together just for fun.
