Seventh Direction

  /    /  Seventh Direction

Alex Luger has spent five years pushing the limits of multi-pitch climbing and challenging himself in unprecedented ways on “Seventh Direction”, his hardest climb so far. As he nears the completion of his psychotherapy studies, Alex reflects on his priorities and questions his motivations for pursuing extreme difficulty and danger. Together with his mentor, Johannes Rauch, he embarks on a transformative journey to explore the complex psychological relationship between his psyche and extreme climbing.
