    You're welcome. It IS an awesome flick, prolly watch it again too. There is another climbing flick that is in smaller theaters nation wide, sorta, called Meru. It's about Jimmy Chin, Conrad Anker and Renan Ozturk climbing this bigwall in India.

    www.merufilm.com Hopefully this is clicky for you guys. This would be a great date night flick, grab a few brews and catch an exciting flick.

     

    Finally watched this tonight. I just fucking love this. So so much admiration for these guys. Putting their passion way way out there and laying it on the line. Crap. Just to have a taste of that kind of love and devotion to something. Oh oh man. (not only that but such a beautiful movie too)

      Couple other great climbing movies I just watched on netflix and amazon:

      Valley Uprising is a neat movie about the history of rock climbing at Yosemite. I'd watch it again. Oh man, I used to fantasize about being Lynn Hill back in high school.

      Beyond the Edge. About the Hillary/Norgay expedition. Awesome movie if you've got any interest in this kind of stuff.

        I've seen Valley Uprising a couple of times and really liked it. I can't remember if I have seen Beyond the edge, if it's on Netflix then probably. I'll double check tomorrow. I can't wait for ice to start forming out here, been keeping my on Franconia and Crawford Notch, Keene, NY too. Thank you for the recommendation. If you want a good read, try Psycho Vertical by Andy Kirkpatrick.

          Joann Y, Check out Norwand, The North Face. I think you'll dig this one too. It isn't streaming, I tried it the other day, need to get the DVD. It's about climbing the north face of the Eiger in 1936, Toni Kurz and Andi Hinterstoisser are the main characters in the flick. Also, a book called the White Spider, by Heinrich Harrer. Check it out, you won't be disappointed.
