Luc,

I think you can watch Beyond Gravity online for free still (hulu?). Check out my gear review on it, I posted the links to the site on the page. Its a good film and definitely worth the watch.

Touching the Void was good (book much better) but they spent way to much time showing the guy crawling along the glacier/ice/snow to get down.

Just saw North Face (Nordwand) and really liked it. K2 is another one I really liked.

I concur, I have watched all the episodes of seasons 1 - 3 and they are pretty darn good. Seems as if Russell Brice is a good guide, truly looks out for the welfare of his climbers. Looking forwards to the upcoming series.

ExcitableBoy wrote:The German film Nordwand which recounts the Toni Kurtz/Andi Hinterstrosser (sp?) epic on the NF Eiger is very, very good. Some of the best climbing scences I have seen in a movie.


nordwand (north face ) is really a great movie !
