"Wonderful viewing"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Excellent viewing. Well shot and well paced. Only criticism is with the unnecessary foul language by a person being interviewed in the studio. It can be excused in the raw mountain footage as it is part of the drama, but it is just not needed elsewhere.

Description

Meru on DVD.

In the high-stakes pursuit of big-wall climbing, the Shark's Fin on Mount Meru may be the ultimate prize. Sitting 21,000 feet above the sacred Ganges River in Northern India, the mountain's per­versely stacked obstacles make it both a nightmare and an irresistible calling for some of the world's toughest climbers. In October 2008, renowned alpinists Conrad Anker, Jimmy Chin and Renan Ozturk arrived in India to tackle Meru. Their planned seven-day trip quickly declined into a 20-day odyssey in sub-zero temperatures with quickly depleting food rations. Despite making it to within 100 meters of the elusive summit, their journey, like everyone before them, was not a successful one

Reviews

“A triumph of editing and narrative beyond "Are you kidding me?” visuals, Meru is a climbing story with context; biographies are woven in incrementally." – Globe and Mail

“Chin and Ozturk capture both the astonishing views from the top of the world and soul-searching moments inside a cramped tent dangling from the side of the mountain like a used tea bag.” – Toronto Star

Meru can evoke a sense of claustrophobia (and other fears) in the viewer. But just as often it gives rise to awe, wonder and amazement at what man, when he puts his mind to it, is capable of.” – Washington Post
