    Riders on the Storm

    Riders on the Storm

    Franz Walter (2016)

    Ines Papert and Mayan Smith-Gobat, accompanied by their photographer friends Thomas Senf and Franz Walter, attempt to free climb 'Riders on the storm', in the extremely difficult east face of Torre Central del Paine, Patagonia. The route was first climbed by Wolfgang Güllich, Kurt Albert, Bernd Arnold, Peter Dittrich and Norbert Bätz in January 1991 in 15 days of climbing over a five-week period. This stunning line on the sheer 1300m east face of Torre Central line went at 7c, A3. The climbing is very varied and demanding, ranging from delicate and runout face climbing to wide cracks and roofs, which were often entirely iced up. As yet, there have been no free ascents of this route, though many strong climbers have tried.

    Rotpunkt

    Chelsea Jolly (2019)

    Through failure and success, Alex Megos strives to be the best climber in the world. The movie is a portrait of the German climber and a look into the history of free climbing including the likes of Kurt Albert and Wolfgang Güllich. The film analyses Megos through his strengths and weaknesses and delves into his origins, namely the start of the Rotpunkt movement, that revolutionary red dot invented in 1975 in Germany's Frankenjura by Kurt Albert which indicates that a route has been climbed free, without the use of aid for progression.

    Non sei mai veramente in alto

    Non sei mai veramente in alto

    Hans Martin Götz (1984)

    You're never really high, Reinhard Karl said, and this phrase is the key to Wolfgang Güllich and Norbert Sandner, very strong 'free climbers', going on a hiking tour in the middle of some famous climbing areas of the United States, in search of the 'superclimb'; Yosemite, Joshua Tree, Monument Valley, Canyons. The ascents made by the two climbers give an idea of the high level they have reached. The wandering between one wall and another is also an opportunity for the two climbers, for an inner examination, touched the top of the last wall in the program, here is the truth: 'What matters is the path because at the very top you never get there ...''.
