    Mountain of storms

    Robert Collinson (1972)

    In the summer of 1968 four men –climber and surfer Yvon Chouinard, climber and skier Doug Tompkins, champion skier Dick Dorworth and climber and cinematographer Lito Tejada-Flores– set off from California in an old van to surf, ski and climb their way down to the southern end of Argentina. Three and a half months and 16,500 miles later, they arrive at their destination: Patagonia, where they met up with a young British climber, Chris Jones. Their goal is to climb a mountain that had been climbed only twice before: Cerro Fitz Roy. The team attempts the first ascent of Fitz Roy's Southwest Buttress, the so-called 'Californian Route'. The film documents this road trip that changed their lives.

    Fitz Roy

    Fitz Roy

    Lito Tejada-Flores (1969)

    The film documents the first ascent of the south-west butress of Fitz Roy in the Patagonian Andes, by Yvon Chouinard, Dick Dorworth, Chris Jones, Doug Tompkins, and Lito Tejada-Flores. The shots, all done in place without subsequent ''reconstructions'' make the climate and the feelings experienced by the protagonists, who made the third successful ascent to Fitz Roy. Their story is also told in the documentary 'Mountain of storms' that narrates the whole trip the team did from California to Patagonia crossing all South America in an old van.

    El Capitan DVD

    El Capitan

    Fred Padula (1978)

    The film follows three climbers as they do the 3000-feet (900 m) vertical ascent of The Nose, the classic first big-wall climb on El Capitan. A fourth climber follows the group and films their ascent but is never seen in the movie. The climbers need three days to reach the summit, which means they have to spend two nights sleeping on steep ledges, waking to magnificent views. Several minutes of the film is filmed in the pitch black when the climbers are caught by nightfall before reaching a ledge to spend the night. The screen is dark when one climber is heard trying to belay another when a bolt breaks loose and the climbers fall, luckily unharmed.

    Conquerors of the Useless follows Jeff Johnson as he retraces the epic 1968 journey of his heroes Yvon Chouinard and Doug Tompkins to Patagonia. Along the way he gets shipwrecked off Easter Island, surfs the longest wave of his life - and prepares himself for a rare ascent of Cerro Corcovado. Jeff's life turns when he meets up in a rainy hut with Chouinard and Tompkins who, once driven purely by a love of climbing and surfing, now value above all the experience of raw nature - and have come to Patagonia to spend their fortunes to protect it.
