Synopsis

Changabang and the Mirrors of a Repetition. Despite its modest altitude (6,864 m), the summit of Changabang, hidden in the Indian Himalaya, has received very few visits and already sheltered too many tragedies. Each ascent of the mountain has been an epic feat, and making an alpine style ascent of the north face is an unprecedented challenge. Three alpinists of the French High Mountain Military Group (GMHM) have only a very short weather window to try to overcome its thousand metres of verticality. Their adventure provides the opportunity to explore questions about what pushes humans to face the dangers and curses of a mountain. Should alpinists who set out to climb a face feel any less joy or pain than the first ascensionists? Do they have reason to feel the same apprehension, pride, and doubt?
