Christoph Hainz is one of the most eclectic climbers of his times, but his name is mainly associated with the Dolomites and in particular with the Tre Cime. The film documents the ascent of the north face of the Cima Grande, which Christoph Hainz made without ropes or safeguards in just 48 minutes, a feat destined to remain in the history of climbing.
