The Spider: A Climber of the Century

82 minutes | documentary



The Spider: The climber of the century

A portrait of the controversial personality of Slovak mountaineering Pavel Pochylý (1945 - 2000) nicknamed Pavúk. He followed the credo that the impossible is just one option. His life story is still breathtaking. He lived in the golden age of mountaineering. The fact that the space for performances and problem solving in the Tatras has narrowed down can be largely due to Pochylý. He solved all the most important challenges of the steep Tatra walls, thus indelibly inscribed in the history of Slovak mountaineering. He conquered every challenging wall with the most difficult climbing ascent. The only problem, however, was himself.
