Burning the Flame
With Barbara Zangerl and Jacopo Larcher
Location: Nameless Tower, Pakistan
Masters of high-wall free climbing, Babsi and Jacopo are looking for their biggest challenge yet: a free ascent of the Eternal Flame, an evasive 3,000-foot route into the legendary Nameless Tower in Pakistan’s Karakoram mountain range. Facing extreme conditions and a traditional high-altitude 5.13 grade climb, a two-year quest boils down to a short weather window. Captured with drones and mountain cameras in one of the most breathtaking places in the world, Burning the Flame transports viewers to a place normally off limits to all but the world’s best climbers.
With Seb Bouin
Location: Verdon Gorge, France
French sport climber Seb Bouin, 29, has quietly worked his way up through the elite ranks, culminating in his attempt to secure a long suspended route in a cave in France’s Verdon gorge. The proposed route is so futuristic, the moves so improbable, that if Seb can pull it all together, it could be the hardest route ever climbed.
