Commissioned by our client, A/G NYM, we were charged with the task to create a short film based around theme "Finish(ed)" - the idea of overcoming the immediate while pressing on in the greater journey.
It was filmed on site for 10 days in Colorado with Andy Catarisano leading the shoot and Jon Prensner feeling the cold burn of antiquated hiking gear. This project was conceptualized around a year ago, and the cast/crew did an exceptional job in bearing both sub-zero temperatures as well as the burden of time that a project can take. After an initial delivery 3 months into the project, the team charged through and pulled off sets of revisions to bring this piece to the place it deserved to be, so massive thanks to everyone.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. Psalm 46:2-3
The principle runs through all life from top to bottom. Give up yourself, and you will find your real self. Lose your life and you will save it. Submit to death, death of your ambitions and favourite wishes every day and death of your whole body in the end: submit with every fibre of your being, and you will find eternal life. Keep back nothing. Nothing that you have not given away will be really yours. Nothing in you that has not died will ever be raised from the dead. Look for yourself, and you will find in the long run only hatred, loneliness, despair, rage, ruin, and decay. But look for Christ and you will find Him and with Him everything else thrown in.
“Our steps follow our instinct and take us into the unknown.
We no longer see the obstacles behind us, but look forward to the ones ahead.”
Kilian is about to embark on some colossal personal challenges that will test his fitness, resolve and skills far beyond the reaches of his career so far. Combining his tremendous capacities for physical endurance with the mountain environment he is so passionate about, Kilian will undertake a number of feats throughout the coming years that stand to change our perception of human capabilities.
The multiple record holder and 3-time winner of the Mont Blanc ultra trail will bring together the sports of ski alpinsim and ultra running as he attempts a series of mountain routes in ground-breaking style - several of them never attempted previously. This spectacular journey will redefine the idea of ‘travelling light’ with technical equipment and back up kept to a bare minimum. The powerful force of nature will provide a rich backdrop for encounters with the natural world and humanity as Kilian attempts the ‘Summits of My Life’.
The project begins this summer in the Mont Blanc massif, where Kilian will set out on two incredible mountain trips, traversing the massif from east to west (Champex to les Contamines) on skis, and then from south to north (Courmayeur to Chamonix) climbing and running. Neither of these routes have been attempted in previously. The project will continue into the coming years, with record attempts planned on Mount Elbrus, the Matterhorn, a speed attempt of Mont Blanc, Mount Mckinley, Aconcagua, and all culminating in an exciting expedition to the roof of the world, Mount Everest.
Montaz-Rosset film are delighted to be part of this incredible project - follow the action on theproject website and join us on facebook.
“It’s not about being the fastest, the strongest or the biggest.
It’s about being ourselves.”
by KILIAN JORNET
September is always a unique time in the Canadian Rockies, the evening temperatures cool just enough to keep the rock frozen in place and the weather settles into a pattern of calm and clear high pressure. Sometimes, the perfect conditions for climbing the north faces.
I usually try and keep my schedule open so I can take advantage of this short window, but most often life gets in the way...the seasons change into winter and dreams of grandeur are replaced with clipping bristlers in the sun at the sport crag. This year things are different.
Earlier in the year, while trying to come to terms with the death of a loved one, I made the decision that to best celebrate the life of Carlyle, was to live by the values that we had shared. Adventure and ultimately alpine climbing was at the core of our shared values. So, I decided that I wouldn't compromise the precious days I had available to climb and that I would take all the opportunities that presented themselves with little expectations. Only the desire for adventure.
When Jason Kruk, a good friend and coastal crusher (but of course no stranger to the Rockies) decided to drive east with an open agenda and some big ideas, I knew that we would be in for an adventure. We met for Java in the Lake Louise parking lot and unanimously decided to go and take a look at the north face of Mt. Alberta. Without disappointment, the north face of Alberta presented us with a grand adventure, steep and technical climbing, big limestone exposure, a caving mission in the middle of the north face and a couple open bivis (man-spooning included).
For the moment, it appears that my commitment to being open to the opportunities that present themselves has become my best outlet for celebrating my life and my dear lost friends.
