A first ascent can take some work, but three years, three attempts and 150 days of tracing the new line - that is commitment. The Egger Project is a series following the incredible first ascent of the west face of Egger in Patagonia. This is possibly one of the greatest adventures in alpinism - in the first two years of trying, alpinists Matteo della Bordella and Matteo Bernasconi teamed up on the route and came 30m shy of the Col de Lux. Feeling lucky to be alive, they decided to retreat. At that point they had climbed 23 pitches with difficulties up to 7a and A2, had placed only two bolts, and named their attempt 'Die Another Day' in reference to their anchor almost pulling out and their experience of coming close to falling to their deaths. And that's not their final attempt... Follow this incredible video series and find out how these alpinists achieved their very difficult dream of a first ascent in Patagonia.
