To Live for Passion

If mountains have a soul, then it is majestic. It was 90 years ago when a young student proved what was then unimaginable. Wieslaw Stanislawski climbed new and difficult routes of the biggest walls in the Slovak Tatras. With only hemp rope around his waist, he climbed with unbelievable passion and desire.

In the winter conditions of Tatra walls, two friends ventured out to follow in his footsteps. They connect his routes, and mountains connect their thoughts. In the breaking avalanches, in the sun's rays, they find Stanislawski's message: if one does something from the bottom of his heart, he does it best.


Stanislawski: "A passion for mountains is one of the biggest and deepest. The one who has ever felt it, understands what I speak about."

Wieslaw Stanislawski was a man of mountain. The mountains created him, they were the essence and joy of his life. In spite of his young age he is one of the best climbers in the whole Tatras history. Two friends pushing their limits, and challenge themselve by following his steps in vertical Tatras walls. In spite of falling avalanches and bad weather they find the Stanislawski´s message. The passion for mountains personified in his routes and thoughts.
