18 mins, Director Graham Zimmerman, USA. BEST CLIMBING FILM AWARD
This is the compelling story of the gruelling first ascent of one of the last great unclimbed mountains in Pakistan’s Karakoram range, Link Sar. Standing 7041m tall, the mountain had been attempted unsuccessfully on nine subsequent occasions following a first attempt in 1970. The experienced US climbers, after a failed attempt two years earlier, finally managed to breach the southeast face in six long days.
