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.

P.S. The brothers did not give up and eventually set the speed climbing record.
The Huber brothers extensive preparation regimen, discussion of the philosophy, and 'pseudo' route climbing is shown. There is a training mishap where death is escaped "by a hair's breadth" that sets the attempt back as they go home to Germany, with even a trip to attempt a traverse of the Cerro Torre group in Patagonia. And finally, in the last 20 minutes, the grand attempt as the Huber brothers start the race for the speed record up El Cap's Nose route. This film is an incisive and interesting look at the climbing Huber brothers. Starring Thomas Huber, Alexander Huber, Dean S. Potter, and Chongo. A Pepe Marquant film. Very Definitely Recommended for climbing fans. Four ABSORBING Stars. (Lotus Films. Hager Moss Films. Quinte Films. Color. Spoken In German with English Closed Captioning. Time-1:36:15.)
Now: Somebody explain this competitive climbing to me. They worked as a pair, and one did the actual scary climbing without a rope, just him clinging to the rock. The other brother ran up the rope with a lever whosit, and he was all roped in, so he was actually pretty safe. He wouldn't fall far as he had most of the protection. Wouldn't the first brother who was just climbing the bare rock and putting in the anchors holding the other get the credit for the fast climb?
I'm clearly not a mountain climber. All the climbing I want to do is into bed after a long day, so temper your criticism please!

A little underwhelming. Brothers have a singular focus, but somehow the big picture feels missed. Some great camera work.Published 18 days ago by melix
