– NZMFF BEST CLIMBING FILM

26 mins, Director Nicolas Falquet, France, subtitles, NZ premiere.

Katherine was the first Swiss climber to complete a 9A route (NZ grade 35) and she decided to repeat this performance in the Bernese Alps, with Jungfrau Marathon, a route with a radically different style. Climbing is her way of life; a true philosophy. No matter how long it takes to achieve this extraordinary climb, she transforms frustration into patience, failure into solution and once again, the dream into reality.
