Alpinism & Expeditions
Already as child, David Lama had been considered as a prodigy climber, when he won his first competitions. Meanwhile he has proven with several extremely difficult Alpine ascents, that he is as well able to adapt his indoor climbing skills to rock faces. The next level is Patagonia. Short weather windows, steep granite walls and a severe climbing ethic demand courage and stamina. In 2009, a first attempt has failed, and the film project became discredited because the camera men used climbing bolts which put into perspective the mountain and pureness of David’s first free climb attempt. Thus, the expedition of 2012 revealed to be a true hardness test for the roped party as well as for the film crew.
