Based on a true story, NORTH FACE is a gripping adventure drama about a competition to climb the most dangerous rock face in the Alps. In 1936, Nazi propaganda urges German Alpinists to conquer the unclimbed north face of the Swiss massif, the Eiger, bringing two reluctant climbers, Toni Kurz (BENNO FÜRMANN) and Andi Hinterstoisser (FLORIAN LUKAS), to begin their daring ascent and attempt to scale the infamous rock face, often called the Murder Wall.

Everest for the 13th time - the most for a non-Sherpa climber.[1] Among Hahn’s other notable accomplishments are his 27 summits of Vinson Massif, Antarctica’s highest mountain. He has reached the summit of Mount McKinley (originally called Denali) in Alaska, North America’s highest peak, 20 times over the course of 27 expeditions in 25 years.

Now that's literally cool! So how did it feel being on top of the world? It was fortunate you were able to climb on good weather; the chill must be a real drag up there! It would be wonderful to share the experience someday.

So happy you guys were able to reach the summit safe and sound. I'm still upset that Sarah & her dad couldn't make it, but I'm glad you were able to complete the journey! Great work, guys!

Our hope was to make the summit bid short and sweet — not so much because going for the top of Mount Everest is an awful and onerous chore, but more because dragging it out can be. Besides, we believed we were shooting for a discreet patch of calm weather and forecasts for such a patch are generally only reliable a few days in advance.
