Burning The Flame
Reel Rock 17 • 46m
Big wall free climbing masters Babsi and Jacopo seek their greatest challenge yet: a free ascent of Eternal Flame, an elusive 3,000-ft. route up the legendary Nameless Tower in Pakistan’s Karakoram range. Facing extreme conditions and 5.13 trad climbing at high altitude, a two-year quest comes down to one short weather window. Captured with drones and on-mountain cameras in one of the most stunning places on earth, Burning the Flame transports viewers to a place normally off-limits to all but the world’s best climbers.
See Pakistan through the eyes of Babsi and Jacopo with the Eternal Journal—a deep dive into their own thoughts and images from the trip, compiled into this beautiful journal chronicling their adventure to send the Eternal Flame. https://www.blackdiamondequipment.com/en_US/stories/eternal-journal/
