Trango Tower, the Eternal Flame video trailer climbed by Lama, Ortner and Rich

03.10.2012 by Planetmountain

The video of the Trango Towers and the ascent carried out by David Lama, Peter Ortner and Corey Rich of the route Eternal Flame, Nameless Tower (6251m), Trango Towers, Karakorum.

The clip is currently making it's way around the world, from America's CBS to Germany's Der Spiegel, and quite rightly so because seeing the mountains from this perspective is really quite unusual and unique. A sort of gentle "bird's eye" view to discover the famous Trango Towers in Pakistan's Karakorum and, in particular, Nameless Tower climbed last summer by the Austrians David Lama  (22) and Peter Ortner (29) and America's Corey Rich via the famous high altitude rock climb Eternal Flame.

The clip was filmed using a small, four-rotored Drone helicopter remote controlled by Swissman Remo Masina who wore special glasses which enabled him to see the images live, just as if he were comfortably sitting in the cockpit at 6200m. This clip lasts only two minutes, but a full 30 minute film is already in the making.
