    Journey to the pulse-pounding heart of danger and suspense and relive 48 white knuckle hours that would go down in history. This is the incredible true story behind the attempted ascent of the legendary Eiger mountain's North Face.

    Summer 1936. Bearing the expectations of their nation and their Fuhrer, two climbers set out to be the first to ascend the "last great problem of the Alps". But soon their ascent becomes as race for survival, threatened by injury and extreme snow storms, a terrifying race against time and the awesome forces of nature.

    Shot through with scenes of gut-wrenching peril rivalling those of "Touching the Void", "North Face" is the heart-stopping powerful tale of human endurance on a terrifying landscape; towering over 1,800m this mountain has claimed over 60 lives and earned itself the nickname ... "The Murder Wall".
