What happens when a crazy movie maker meets a crazy boulderer and they decide to make a film together? After about two years of work, the result is an amazing movie for the fans of this genre that shows bouldering in a unique and innovative style. The philosophy of life and the climbing mastery of Bernd Zangerl are highlighted in different enterprises, in Ticino, in the Magic Wood and on Mount Silvretta. Each place, as Zangerl states, has its own characteristic and ambience and demands different techniques, styles and mental attitudes.
