No Turning Back - Hansjörg Auer Fri Night Vid

Our Friday Night Video this week is a biopic of Hansjörg Auer. When people think of Hansjörg they mainly remember his outrageous solo of The Fish on the Marmolada. No Turning Back combines some stunning cinematography with a story that begins with Hansjörg's early years, through to his obsession with soloing and his objectives in the greater ranges. The film portrays him as a vulnerable character who becomes comfortable in his own skin through climbing.

I've heard of (and seen) The Fish. A solo of that is more than enough to make sit up.

Geeky kid who finds it hard to make friends grows up to be he coolest badass with a chalkbag. The vid was spectacular as it showed a very human side of the whole thing, very honest so even us mere mortals can relate to what he's saying. I have to admit, North Face do some pretty amazing vids on the adventures without the crazy music and the usual high octane d**k head stuff. Product placement was minimal and you have to respect that. I hope this guy doesn't die doing that free solo stuff.

I thought that was excellent. A moving story, an interesting and authentic character, great footage, well put together and even a cool and fitting score.
