Camp 4 Collective | 2011 | 14 min.

2012 Official Selection

Follow climbers Mark Synnott, Alex Honnold and James Pearson as they travel across the roadless, windswept deserts of northeastern Chad. Basing their expedition on nothing more than a few photographs and rumors of a promised land with countless unclimbed sandstone towers, Mark’s insatiable thirst for adventure and first ascents leads the small crew deep into the spectacular landscape of the Ennedi desert. In their search for unclimbed sandstone towers, the team finds much more than climbing in this film about risk and the arc of a climber’s career.
