The „Rotwand/Roda di Vael“ in the Rosengarten Group of the Dolomites. Around 100 years ago, this face was deemed unscalable. Great names of Alpine history attempted it. With original footage from the 1960ies, with re-enacted scenes and complicated climbing shots, those “100 years of climbing” are documented. Reinhold Messner, Christoph Hainz, Erich Abram, Hanspeter Eisendle, Cesare Maestri, Oswald Celva and last but not least Florian and Martin Riegler talk about their experiences in the Rotwand. The two Riegler brothers climb their extremely demanding route in the Rotwand once again in front of the cameras. These shots give the public the feeling as if they were in the rock face themselves.
