Editorial Reviews

Review

A visually breathtaking essay about daredevils hooked on the thrill of speed rock-climbing. --Variety

A heroic feat - 'Spider-Man' without computer graphics! --New York Sun

As thrilling and awe-inspiring as TOUCHING THE VOID! --NYCMovieGuru.com

Product Description

Thomas and Alexander Huber rank as two of the best mountain climbers ever. Now the brothers set out to break the record in speed climbing the 2,900 foot sheer cliff known as 'The Nose' of El Capitan in Yosemite Valley.

Extreme sports don't come any more extreme than speed rock-climbing. In their attempt to set a world record, the Hubers compress a three-day ascent for regular climbers into less than three hours. Intensive practice and split-second timing are required, and one false step can bring fatal disaster.

Featuring breathtaking footage of the mountains of Patagonia and Yosemite National Park, Academy Award® winner Pepe Danquart (Hell on Wheels) follows the Huber brothers to locations never before reached by a film crew, capturing two competitive brothers who go to the very edge.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Inspirational Story April 12, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent story about the determination to succeed at any and all cost. This was never intended to be an instructional video about rock climbing which would have been extremely boring. Instead this is a story about not giving up no matter the odds against you or how many times you fail. As the film maker stated, he had no interest in making a film simply about climbing. This is a film about rock climbing as a metaphor for life. This movie is not meant for quitters.

P.S. The brothers did not give up and eventually set the speed climbing record.

Really enjoyed this. I wish it was an hour longer. Not only great climbing footage but the story about the brothers really makes it worth watching.

I had read the book to top of the world . Iam afraid to say this I went to the same high school as he did . kids did not now how to approach him but the other hand they he was a great athlete . I especially wanted to say thanks you to Erik. ,to prove the the school system wrong. My mother was a substitute teacher and head of substituting . She knew most if not all the kids it was a small high school everybody knew somebody . Anyway I was going to join the wresting team and the head of speacial Ed , did not think I was going to be any good . I use to see Eric at the wresting matches he was a inspiration to me but everyone else they wer just afraid to say it . Any way my mother knew he was big into mountain climbing when he was in the middle school if I got that right , when I saw the movie I was really touch to see his father with him and I know his mother was up there with him . It was nice to see him doing what he set out to do . To show the special ed department that we can achieve,our goals if we put our heads to gether. I miss seeing his Black and Tan Shepard and his golden retriever by his. Side. I put a personal touch in there because he wasn't just another climber he was a long time student that that tought all of us there is no obicals, just the ones you put them there your self . Rock on Eric !

Please see this movie anybody can do the unthinkable . This movie will move anybody especially people with disablities.
