After three unsuccessful attempts on Annapurna, Jean-Christophe Lafaille is joined by Basque climber Alberto Iñurrategi on a wildly committing traverse of the East Ridge - ten miles long, mostly above 24,000 ft to the main summit. The story is told from the perspective of both Jean-Christophe, and his wife Katia, who waits in Base Camp.
Awards and Festivals: Finalist At Banff, Kendal, Trento, Graz and many other Festivals in 2003. Runner up best Climbing film at Kendal 2003.
About the Film
This is interesting with good footage of the earlier parts of the climb. The only strange part is that the video mostly skips from high camp to the summit and then is over. Lots of J.C. talking to the camera in his tent and lots of Katia talking toward the end.
