Amazed to discover that two of my favourite things (Werner Herzog films and rock climbing) combine into one during a random visit to the video store. Scream of Stone was made in 1991. Werner Herzog took a film crew to Cerro Torre in Patagonia and made a movie about one sport-climber’s mission to make the first ascent. The movie itself is a long shot from Fitzcarraldo and even Herzog now distances himself from it. Seeing footage of the climber Stefan Glowacz solo climbing Kachoong at Mt. Arapiles is definitely the highlight; it’s the same famous ascent pictured in this photo which you’ll find in climbing gyms everywhere.
