Twelve young and gifted alpinists, five geologists and four top-notch mountain guides dare a unique expedition in Patagonia. On behalf of the researchers the young alpinists get rock samples from the up to 1000-meter high granite spires of the Paine-Massive. The impeding challenge for the mountaineers is massive: Severe bigwall-climbing, unsettled weather, stormy winds wearing ropes and nerves – and a disaster that brings the group to its emotional limit.
