MERU (Sundance Film Festival Basin Recreation Fieldhouse in Park City, Utah USA 2015)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì

breathtaking—takes viewers on a vertical climb to the top of Meru with great camera shots documenting the journey. Well done. Thanks to all involved for a inside view into what it takes to achieve exceptionally difficult physical goals.
