"Life is brought down to the basics: if you are warm, regular, healthy, not thirsty or hungry, then you are not on a mountain... Climbing at altitude is like hitting your head against a brick wall - it's great when you stop."

I recently stumbled on First Ascent - Kunyang Chhish East , available as First Ascent - Kunyang Chhish East in Vimeo. The topic of the flick is the first ascent of SW faceKunyang Chhish East7400mSW face by Hansjörg Auer, Simon Anthamatten and Amtthias Auer back in 2014.

Until the ascent, the peak was one of highest unclimbed peaks and also one of the most sought after objectives. The peak had send some very strong suitors back empty handed. I had no idea there was a film about the ascent.
