    Auf den Spuren der Ersten

    Matthias Mayr (2017)

    The Austrian professional freerider and adventurer Matthias 'Hauni' Haunholder and Matthias Mayr set off to follow the traces of pioneers who had skied down famous Alpine mountains for the first time – and they are impressed. They are even more surprised, when they consider the materials of that time. Observed by a state-of-the-art camera, the two professional skiers try to repeat the partly extremely exposed descents. Due to the climate warming, some ski runs have become even more extreme, or already impossible. They experience thrilling moments on the north face of the Hochfeiler in the Zillertal Alps or in the Pallavicini Gully on the Großglockner.

    The white maze

    Matthias Mayr (2016)

    After a whole year of planning, scouting and guesswork, Freeskiers and adventurers Matthias 'Hauni' Haunholder and Matthias Mayr accomplished their personal mission impossible. They skied the 'Gora Pobeda', highest Peak of Eastern Siberia, which had never been attempted before. Gora Pobeda' is known to be a very difficult mountain to ascend, partly because it´s a steep, rocky and icy peak but also because it is so hard to reach. The next village with road access is more than 350 km away. The next helicopter and hospital is 1300 km away in Yakutsk. Beside that it is one of the coldest regions in the world with temperatures dropping below minus 60˚C. The time window to ascend and descend the mountain is very small due to the extreme continental climate.

    Into the light Vod

    Into the light

    Jochen Schmoll (2014)

    Majlis al Jinn, a huge subterranean chamber in Oman, is big enough to house the Great Pyramid of Giza. Climbers Chris Sharma and Stefan Glowacz attempt an ascent up the massive arch and back to the light of the surface. After rappelling down a 170-metre drop, Chris Sharma and his partner set out for their record-breaking ascent from the deepest point of the cave. Fighting gravity they follow the enormous arch suspended upside down much of the time. It is a ground-breaking climb back into the light. The route has never been attempted before and counts as the world’s longest roof climb with 13 pitches.

    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.'

    Über dem Wolf's Tooth

    Über dem Wolf's Tooth

    Cengiz Tanc (2011)

    Russian Base jumper Valery Rozov’s jumping adventure from Mount Ulvetanna, one of the highest peaks of Antarctica. Valery Rozov and his team go to the the Drygalski Mountains in Queen Maud Land, a place of extreme conditions where humans can fly. Here after weeks of preparation, Rozov conquers the almost vertical wall soaring 3,280 feet (1,000 meters) into the sky. What follows is pure adrenaline: for nearly one minute Rozov hurtles down the sheer rock-face before he pulls his chute open to make a safe landing. This is the first jump from one of the most difficult peaks in this icy desert. This is a 25 minutes version of the original 'Over the Wolf's Tooth', shortened for the Highlights series of the austrian ServusTV.
