Chamlang UFO / Márek Holeček, Zdeněk Hák premiere today at 20

di

Today at 20:00 CET the premiere of UFO Life, the film documenting the first ascent of UFO up the NW Face of Chamlang in the Nepalese Himalaya, carried out in 2019 over 6 days alpine style by Czech mountaineers Márek Holeček and Zdeněk Hák.

"The UFO route on Chamlang is a very intelligent route. A beautiful line, a difficult wall. How they found the line, is a piece of art." Reinhold Messner is in no doubt that the route climbed in May 2019 by Czech mountaineers Márek Holeček and Zdeněk Hák up the virgin NW Face of Chamlang is an important addition to the Nepalese Himalaya. The two required 6 bivies in total, 4 during the ascent and 2 during the descent, to climb UFO before describing it as 'the hardest climb we have done together in the mountains."

The documentary of the ascent includes comments by both Messner and Doug Scott and goes live this evening at 20:00 CET, and both Holeček and film maker Jan Šimánek will answer questions after the premiere
