    Shared Vision – A Journey Beyond Sight

    Shared Vision – A Journey Beyond Sight

    Keith Partridge (2019)

    Red Szell suffers from the degenerative eye condition retinitis pigmentosa and is now blind. But he’s always had an adventurous streak and in this inspirational journey, we see Red travel to the very NW corner of Scotland. As the first blind climber to reach the top of the iconic sea stacks of the Old Man Of Hoy and Old Man Of Stoer only Am Buachaille remains in the trilogy of these blades of rock that jut from the crashing Atlantic. Just reaching the base will involve a triathlon of sorts, with a mountain bike ride, a steep scramble down the mainland cliff before a swim across the tidal flow to reach the start of the climb. He then has four hours to get up and get off before the tide races in. Red’s story is a journey beyond sight.

    Le marathon de Katherine

    Le marathon de Katherine

    Nicolas Falquet (2020)

    Katherine Choong, the first Swiss climber to complete a 9A route, decided to repeat this performance in the Bernese Alps with "Jungfrau Marathon". For her, to repeat with such a performance represents much more than a sporting feat. Climbing is her school of life, a true philosophy. No matter how long it takes to achieve this extraordinary new achievement, she transforms frustration into patience, failure into solution, and once again, the dream into reality.

    Zodiac

    Jon Glassberg (2017)

    In November 2016, Barbara 'Babsi' Zangerl and Jacopo Larcher went to battle on one of El Capitan most formidable free routes. With some of the hardest climbing in the Yosemite Valley crammed into 16-pitches, Zodiac (5.13d) had only seen two previous free ascents—until Babsi and Jacopo showed up. The route, opened by Charlie Porter in 1972, was first free climbed by Alex and Thomas Huber in October 2003, and later, by Tommy Caldwell just two months later.
