Only they see those lines on sheer rock, only in their heads do certain traces exist. Swiss mountaineers Stephan Siegrist and Thomas Huber have often demonstrated their intuitive talents. In 2017 they achieve another masterpiece, together with Julian Zanker, at the pristine granite peak of Cerro Kishtwar, succeeding with a first ascent of its icy big wall. They call the route “Har-Har-Mahadev”, which translates roughly through Bavarian as “Pull yourself together!”.

Thomas Huber screens his film about this daring venture for the first time at the Tegernsee Mountain Film Festival.

While making hay at the steep flanks of Mt. Rophaien, 62-year-old Axiger Sepp plunges 300 m (984 ft) down to his death. The father of six was an experienced wild hay maker and well familiar with the risks of retrieving grass from often near-vertical mountain flanks. Nowadays, his youngest daughter Julia keeps the mountain farm going. Just like him, she will need to clamber up to the “Wildi” slopes to obtain enough fodder for her animals.

Over three decades, the Huber Boys have become an actual brand, not only in the outdoor community, but also as climbers, mountaineers and as brothers. Since their youngest days, Thomas and Alexander have been embodying a seemingly perfect rope team. It does not surprise that between such different characters with their respective egos, sparks can fly. They live through highs and lows, falls and triumphs. In 2017 the Huber Boys together turned 100 years old. A good moment for an interim balance.

Kanchenjunga, circumstances force the routined duo to abruptly switch roles.

Olé! Sun, beach, siesta – these spring to mind when we think of Spain. How about an archaic mountain landscape with snowy flanks and proud peaks? The Aiguestortes National Park is located on the Spanish side of the Pyrenees. Whoever takes off on a ski tour around here will barely find any information. Surprises are a quintessential part of this mountain wilderness as well as interesting encounters.

A powerful and clever insight into an unusual life.
