FACING OBSESSION

JOCHEN SCHMOLL

Germany / 2007 / 26'

Stefan Glowacz and Robert Jasper are totally obsessed with climbing the notorious “Forgotten Wall”, the steep and massive 1,000 metre North pillar of the Cerro Murallón amidst the inland ice of Patagonia. This obsession dates back to the year 2003 when they first attempted to climb the Cerro Murallón’s North Face. Although back then, they were brutally beaten back by the raging storms of Patagonia, the two “possessed” climbers and alpinists decide to return for two more extremely tricky attempts to climb the wall’s peak. However, the ice cold “Forgotten Wall” of the Cerro Murallón seems indomitable. In order to make their dream come true and reach their ambitious goal, Stefan Glowacz and Robert Jasper are finally forced to push themselves to the very limit.
