The famous North Face of the Eiger is revered among climbers, not only for the quality of its rock but also for its intimidating dimensions and technical challenges. This lethal exposure has tested the limits of climbing for the past century. Now, climbing pioneer Dean Potter pushes another boundary for himself and the Eiger by scaling the North Face with no rope, just a backpack containing a carefully folded parachute. “Adrenaline makes me feel calm,” says Potter in this film that is part of the First Ascent series by Sender Films.
