Premiere today, “14 Peaks: Nothing Is Impossible” is a feature film that documents a climber’s attempt to climb the world’s most relentless peaks in record time.
How long does it take to reach the highest mountains in the world and is it possible to do it in just one season? These are the main questions behind Netflix “14 Peaks: Nothing Is Impossible. »
The title alone tells you some basic information about the feature. The film is about 14 mountains and suggests that there is a dam that still needs to be broken. But which 14 peaks does it refer to and what happens to them seems so inaccessible?
Only 14 mountains are located 8,000 m (26,247 feet) above sea level. Less than 50 climbers have reached all. And, until recently, no one had done it in less than 7 years.
Nirmal Purja, the record-breaking climber
In 2019, Nepalese-British climber Nirmal Purja began to add his name to the most exquisite mountaineering roster. But there is more to Purja’s “Project Possible” than a list – he wanted to break the 7-year-old speed record by sending it all in just 7 months.
There are many high altitude peaks in the world. In the country of mountaineering, the peaks are categorized according to their approximate altitude as measured in meters. Six thousand, seven thousand and eight thousand are the most sought after and awesome peaks.
Typically, the degree of danger required to climb a peak increases with altitude. Altitude sickness, avalanches, tool failure, crisis weaknesses, adverse weather conditions – any small accident can be devastating.
“14 Peaks: Nothing Is Impossible” records Purja and his sherpa team as they try to reach peaks like Mount Everest, K2 and other iconic peaks in record time.
