    Monte Sarmiento - Die weisse Diva

    Jochen Schmoll (2016)

    All the mountains have been climbed? Not at all! Monte Sarmiento at the southernmost end of South America is not even 2,300 metres high, and yet mountaineers have only reached the summit twice with over twenty attempts so far. In order to fulfill a mountaineering dream, the Hamburg geologist, photographer and Patagonian expert Ralf Gantzhorn travels to Monte Sarmiento for the seventh time. Three friends accompany him to this company, which begins a sailing trip in the port city of Ushuaia. Even the journey across the sea, with views of green forests, mighty glaciers and untouched mountains, captivates the mountaineers.

    An American ascent

    George Potter (2016)

    An American Ascent documents the first African American expedition to tackle Denali, North America's highest peak and explores the complex relationship many African-Americans have with the outdoors. As the United States transitions to a 'minority majority' nation, a staggering number of people of color do not identify with America's wild places. By embarking on the grueling multi-week climb of the 20,327ft Denali, nine African-American climbers set out to bridge this 'adventure gap' - challenging outdated notions of what adventure looks like by changing the face of America's biggest and baddest mountain on the 100th anniversary of its first summit.

    K2 and the invisible footmen

    Iara Lee (2015)

    Statistically, for every four climbers who summits K2, one of them will die, and the mountain has the second highest fatality rate among the world's highest peaks. 'It's the father of all mountains...one mistake and you're dead', warns one climber. As the climbing season only lasts from May through to August, porters must make enough money in these months to support themselves through the rest of the year. 'It's difficult to make ends meet... there is no other source of income', complains one: of his seven children, he can only afford to send two of them to school.

    To be first - The quest for Yangmolong

    Tim Boelter (2013)

    The final chapter in the three year quest to climb Yangmolong was closed on October 20th at 3:31pm when we reached the summit.

We definitely want to thank our sponsor Kailas for standing by us for three years in a row.

    Hansjörg Auer - No Turning Back

    Damiano Levati (2017)

    Probably no one has explored solo climbing like Hansjörg Auer, whose memorable feat on the 'fish route' has forever marked the history of this very peculiar kind of mountaineering. 'The hardest thing to do when you're doing free solo,' says Hansjörg, 'is not the ascent. It is to go back home.' Why? Because when loneliness strips you naked you understand the importance of the relationships you build with people around you. 'No turning back' is an introspective and epic film, delicate and powerful: there is not only vertical life, there is not only performance. There is an all-round discovery of what makes a life worth living.
