MANASLU - Mountain of Souls
Filming of Hans Kammerlander's life. Production start: July 2017. locations: South Tyrol - Nepal.
Hans Kammerlanders größter Erfolg, der ihn 1996 weltberühmt werden lies, ist die bis heute schnellste Begehung über die Nordroute zum Gipfel des Mount Everest in 16h 40 min. Gleichzeitig gelang ihm mit dieser Rekordbegehung die erste Skiabfahrt vom Gipfel des höchsten Berges der Welt. Seine schmerzvollste Tragödie erlitt Hans Kammerlander 1991 am 8163 Meter hohen Manaslu in Nepal, wo er zwei seiner besten Freunde verlor. Einer stürzte aus unerfindlichen Gründen ab, der andere wurde wenige Meter neben ihm vom Blitz erschlagen. Hans, selbst in Lebensgefahr, überlebte das Gewitter am Rande des Wahnsinns. Mit der geplanten Besteigung 2017 stellt sich Hans Kammerlander nach 26 Jahren nicht nur erneut dem Manaslu, sondern auch der Tragödie von 1991, die er bis heute nicht verarbeiten konnte.

DOCU: THE SIX NORTH FACES OF THE ALPS
on 28th December 2016 at 21:15 on Servus TV
Bleak, cold, forbidding, steep: the alpine north faces are the epitome of extreme mountaineering. This especially applies to the north faces of the mountains Eiger, Matterhorn, Grandes Jorasses, Piz Badile, Großer Zinne and Aiguille du Dru. Every one of them is part of a well-known and prominent peak, and a milestone of alpine history links every one of the faces. In the 20th century, they embodied those goals which a mountaineer had to have conquered in order to rank among the elite. To this day these faces constitute a popular and at the same time exceedingly dangerous arena for extremes.
