    Střípky ze života horolezce

    Libor Dušek (2018)

    A tribute to Miroslav Šmíd, a Czech rock climber, solo climber, mountaineer, mountain cinematographer and photographer.

Šmíd died tragically in 1993 during a solo ascent at Lost Arrow Spire in Yosemite. Apparently he fell just below the top while he was climbing unroped. All his equipment was found on the last ledge below the top.
