SYNOPSIS

Yamanoi is a climber who has taken on massive cliffs across the world by himself. In 2021, he received the Piolets d'Or Lifetime Achievement Award, the highest honor in the climbing world. But Yamanoi's journey is far from over. Through interviews with his wife Taeko, we shed light on the turbulent life of a man captivated by a 'vertical world'.
