    O eslabón perdido

    Pablo Ces (2014)

    Benito Santos, known as Bendecorme, is a benchmark in bouldering in Galicia. Benito lives in Corme, where the waters of the Atlantic attack the coast with force. There he spends about three hours a day underwater, dedicated to the task of collecting diver. When he's done, he spends as much time as he can on his favorite activity - boulder climbing. 'El eslabón perdido' is the name of a bouldering line that Bendecorme has been testing for years: 'the line of my life'. A block that nobody has managed to chain so far.

    Mount Everest 1996 - Traum und Wirklichkeit

    Mount Everest 1996 - Traum und Wirklichkeit

    Stefan Urlass (1996)

    The first Saxon Mount Everest Expedition attempted to climb the mountain in 1996. Without additional oxygen, high porters, or even a kitchen team, the Saxons climbed from the north side in Tibet up to 8,500 meters. They had to turn back only 350 meters below the summit. The team had to give up the summit to take part in the rescue of a Japanese climber. It was 1996, the year of the great Everest catastrophe, in which many climbers from various expeditions on the mountain died. The 14 members from Saxony were awarded the 'Fair Play Prize' by the city of Dresden for their expedition and their help on the mountain.

    Lost on Everest

    Renan Ozturk (2019)

    Reaching 29,029 feet, Mount Everest has long captivated mountaineers of all stripes. But a peak that draws athletes and mountaineers to new heights isn’t without danger — or a dark side. Perhaps the peak’s greatest mystery is the missing body of Andrew “Sandy” Irvine who disappeared alongside George Leigh Mallory in 1924 just 800 vertical feet from the summit. In Lost on Everest, we follow along as a team of elite climbers with new intel on the location of his missing body set out to solve what may be mountaineering’s great mystery. Along with the body, the team hopes to find Irvine’s camera and the footage that could rewrite history.
