Synopsis

Thomas and Alexander Huber rank as two of the best mountain climbers ever. Now the brothers set out to break the record in speed climbing the 2,900 foot sheer cliff known as ‘The Nose’ of El Capitan in Yosemite Valley.

Extreme sports don’t come any more extreme than speed rock-climbing. In their attempt to set a world record, the Hubers compress a three-day ascent for regular climbers into less than three hours. Intensive practice and split-second timing are required, and one false step can bring fatal disaster.

Featuring breathtaking footage of the mountains of Patagonia and Yosemite National Park, Academy Award® winner Pepe Danquart (Hell on Wheels) follows the Huber brothers to locations never before reached by a film crew, capturing two competitive brothers who go to the very edge.
