After suffering dramatic setbacks, three close friends, all among the world’s best professional climbers, battle their complicated pasts, inner demons and nature’s harshest elements to confront the Shark’s Fin on Mount Meru, the most technically complicated and dangerous peak in the Himalayas.

MUBI's take

Climber-director Jimmy Chin’s (Free Solo) vertigo-inducing imagery captures his team’s relentless drive to complete the first-ever ascent of Meru Peak’s shark fin, also known as the “Anti-Everest.” Combatting snowstorms at 6000m and -20°C, Meru is an invigorating study of passion and perseverance.
