    En la tierra de los bereberes

    Antonio Perezgrueso (2015)

    Climbing documentary that delves into the most authentic Morocco, passing through the small villages of the mountains and their valleys. An intense journey full of contrasts through a territory crossed with villages, nomadic camps, gorges and gorges, until you reach Taghia, a small Berber village surrounded by large walls where lovers of vertical challenges find paradise. There we find 'Au nom de la reforme', a route to climb without other help than hands and feets. In this same area the snow that melts with the arrival of spring, feeds rivers that form aggressive canyons and ravines. The descent of the Ahanesal river will be another of the objectives of this episode of 'Al filo de lo imposible'.

    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.
