    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.

    La montagna di Ilio

    La montagna di Ilio

    Francesca Zannoni (2017)

    “What is the sense of recounting a silent story, a story that does not have the words to be told? Why reveal a secret?” The Pale di San Lucano, in the Belluno Dolomites, are wild, steep and incredible mountains. Yet they are hidden, like this story: the story of Ilio De Biasio, a climber from Cencenighe Agordino, his brothers and his friends; a tale of exploration and friendship, adventure and visceral love for these mountains. A true story, without fuss, in search of the most elusive and precious thing that we have: life.

    Janhukot

    Matt Pycroft (2018)

    In May 2018, three British climbers Malcolm Bass, Paul Figg and Guy Buckingham set out to attempt the first ascent of Janhukot, a mountain buried deep in the heart of the Indian Garwhal Himalaya. Janhukot (6805m) has seen attempts as far back as the 1980s, and is surrounded by some of the jewels of Himalayan summits - Shivling, Meru, Kedar Dome. We follow the climbers throughout their expedition, as they document their experiences and give an insight into the emotional and physical challenges they encounter throughout their journey. ‘Janhukot’ explores not just the idea, but the reality that, with some sacrifice and training, ordinary people can do something extraordinary.

    Golden Line Verdon

    Stefan Fritsche (2017)

    The climbing route 'Golden Shower' in the Verdon Gorge was first ascended in 2012 by Stefan Glowacz. With its 150 meters and difficulties up to 8b+ it is one of the most difficult multi-pitch routes in the area. The one-day redpoint ascent of these four pitches on the extremely steep Maugué pillar is still outstanding. The two climbers and mountain guides Tobias Bitschnau and Christoph Schranz are fascinated by the distinctive and exposed line of the route. So, they decide to tackle the project. The key passages and the quite untypical rock quality for Verdon will demand everything from them.

    Edurne Pasaban captains an expedition with the objective of climbing Mt. Saipal (7,031 m). Next to her, there are four local women.
