Mountains on Stage - Summer Edition 2020
For this Summer Edition 2020, despite the particular context of the Covid-19 pandemic, Mountains on stage still had the pleasure to gather more than 30,000 enthusiasts around incredible mountain adventures. More than ever, it was time to get away and travel the world in the company of exceptional adventurers who knew how to face adversity and exceed their limits.
This 15th edition of Mountains on stage took place in 46 cities and 4 countries in Europe!
Thanks again to our faithful public for their support and their extraordinary welcome everywhere we went! Thank you also for the respect of all the sanitary rules, allowing the good progress of the event.
You will find below the course of this Summer Edition. We look forward to seeing you next November for the Winter Edition 2020!
For this Summer Edition 2020, 4 films were on the program. There was something for everyone: paragliding, mountaineering, climbing or kayaking.
Tim Emmett and Kyra Condie took us to the heart of Ha Long Bay in Vietnam for some incredible overwater climbing sessions. We then went to the north of Pakistan with Antoine Girard and Damien Lacaze who took us flying at almost 8000 meters above the Karakorum. We also went kayaking on one of the sources of the Amazon, in Peru, for a crazy adventure with the collective We are Hungry. Finally, the last adventure of the evening plunged us into the heart of a Polish national expedition that attempted, in 2018, to climb K2 in winter, alongside Adam Bielecki and Denis Urubko, among others.
We started the evening in Vietnam, discovering Ha Long Bay and its magnificent cliffs, real magnets for climbers in search of exploration and "deep water solo", a practice that consists of climbing up to 20 meters high without a rope before throwing yourself into the water. With the film "Deep Water Solo", we discovered a wonderful story of transmission between Kyra Condie, a young American climber, and her mentor Tim Emmett, pioneer of the discipline.
An adventure to be found on the following link: Deep Water Solo.
The evening continued with Antoine Girard and Damien Lacaze, for a 1500km bivouac flight over the Karakorum range, in northern Pakistan. Their film "Lost in Karakorum" offers breathtaking images, at an altitude of nearly 8000 meters. A journey led by a duo of shockers who try to climb the Spantik (7027m) in two days, thanks to paragliders. A totally innovative project!

We then embarked on a 17-day trip in autonomy in the bowels of the Andes. In the film "Apurimac", 6 French kayakers from the collective We Are Hungry grabbed their paddles to face the tormented waters of this source of the Amazon. A human adventure full of twists and turns as well as a true ode to friendship and exploration!

Finally, we have finished the evening with an immersive film in the heart of the cold and wind, in an attempt to solve the last great challenge of world mountaineering! The Polish national team embarked us in their attempt to climb K2, the last 8000 meter peak still unclimbed in winter. This expedition, notably composed of Adam Bielecki and Denis Urubko, is both a perilous ascent and an incredible human adventure.
You can find the DVD that tells the untold story of "The Last Mountain" on our website.
