    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.

    Acopan - Aufbruch zum Goetterberg

    Jochen Schmoll (2008)

    On the plateau of the Gran Sabana in southern Venezuela, the Acopan Tepui towers over the jungle in the sky. It is one of the table mountains that shaped erosion about 70 million years ago.

    Golden Line Verdon

    Stefan Fritsche (2017)

    The climbing route 'Golden Shower' in the Verdon Gorge was first ascended in 2012 by Stefan Glowacz. With its 150 meters and difficulties up to 8b+ it is one of the most difficult multi-pitch routes in the area. The one-day redpoint ascent of these four pitches on the extremely steep Maugué pillar is still outstanding. The two climbers and mountain guides Tobias Bitschnau and Christoph Schranz are fascinated by the distinctive and exposed line of the route. So, they decide to tackle the project. The key passages and the quite untypical rock quality for Verdon will demand everything from them.

    Die Jaspers

    Die Jaspers

    Andreas Köstler (2017)

    The Jaspers, are almost a normal family. The Jaspers are Robert and Daniela, their children Stephan and Amelie and the Tibetan Terrier Denga. They would go through everyday life as a normal family if it weren't for the past and the present. If it weren't for these abysses. Robert Jasper is an extreme mountaineer, still one of the best in the world. In his film 'Die Jaspers - eine Familie am Abgrund', SWR filmmaker Andreas Köstler paints a portrait of a family for whom the unknown on the mountain has a very special charm, without their blue-eyed, life-threatening adventures.
