Film premiere: Ama Dablam - The holy mountain (in german language with simultaneous translation in italian)
Director: Reinhold Messner
We see the crazings in the bright ice wall. First, the ice cracks, piece by piece starts to break, bigger and bigger pieces, more and more numerous. In this moment, the ice blocks – like heads, fists, chairs – smack into four climbers down there. We are on the West Wall of the Holy Mountain Ama Dablam; the ice cascade pours into the climbers guided by Peter Hillary, son of Edmund Hillary, the first climber of the Mountain Everest.
Thanks to an incredible camaraderie action, it was possible to save Peter Hillary, seriously injured, and other two companions by bringing them to the Mingbo wall, out from the stone and ice hell. Climbers take more risks, when it comes to save other climbers. During these actions, they behave themselves not heroically, but instinctively. Empathy rules.
It was „PURE ADRENALIN“ writes Oelz later. Even today, in the land of the sherpas, it is whispered about the revenge of the gods of the „Holy Mountain“.
In collaboration with International Mountain Summit and Servus TV.
