16 mins, Director Pedro Pimentel, NZ, World Premiere.

A New Zealand tale of blood, sweat and tears that explores the meaning of the unique camaraderie of the tribe of people pursuing the frivolous pursuits of the great outdoors and extreme sports. A story that brings some light to the connection – often mysterious – between the names of first descents, ascents, routes and other mountaineering achievements, with the stories behind them. Names that often immortalize creative and hilarious ideas, special moments and personal connections, and remind us that the biggest rewards of a life well-lived in the great outdoors might just be the deep friendships carved along the journey that often mark us for a lifetime.
