The Brento Base Project
Austria / 2011 / 25'
Paul Kupsa has always loved testing himself, pushing himself beyond his limits using peaks and rock faces. In “Brento Base Project” he exploits the steepness of the 1100 metre face of Monte Brento, north of Lake Garda, with the scope of exploring a new form of climbing – Base Soloing. By bringing together free climbing without safety ropes and base jumping, he discovers total freedom of movement. Kupsa climbs until he falls... but falling is not a mistake, it’s a possibility!
