Even if your not especially into climbing, I think it would still be a nice film to see as it has some stunning scenery of the Valley, as well as Patagonia and Germany. This film is about their attempts a couple years ago, not last years. In October last year, while my girlfriend and I were passing through the valley we spoke briefly with Alex about the progress on their latest attempt. A couple weeks later, on Oct. 8th, they set the record at 2:45.45. That is 2,900 vertical feet of granite. Most normal people take around 4-5 days…
