“Broad Peak - Das 8.000er Abenteuer”

Markus Pirer 39 min

Saturday, 15. Nov. 2008 from 08:00 in Grazer Congress - GrĂ¼ner Saal       

The two friends Markus Pirer and David Otti participate in an anniversary expedition of the Austrian Alpine Club to Pakistan. Their goal is the 8047m high Broad Peak. This very personal film gives an insight into the fascinating world of high altitude climbing and shows the life of the Pakistan porters. It also deals with companionship on the mountains and it focuses on the hours in which the mountaineers are completely alone on the mountain. Markus and David did not reach the summit of the Broad Peak, however, they returned back home healthy and they still remain friends.
