The Making of Meru

Go behind the scenes of the award-winning film Meru (opening August 2015) with photographer and renowned climber Jimmy Chin and filmmaker Chai Vasarhelyi and experience the thrills—and challenges—faced in a quest for the legendary summit.

Sitting at the headwaters of the sacred Ganges River in Northern India, the Shark’s Fin on Mount Meru has seen more failed attempts by elite climbing teams than any other peak in the Himalaya. While just hours from reaching the summit in 2008, Chin and fellow climbers Conrad Anker and Renan Ozturk were forced to turn back less than 100 meters from the summit. As they planned their controversial return to Meru in 2011, they met with crushing mishaps—a serious head injury for Ozturk and a terrifying avalanche slide for Chin. Through film clips, never-before-seen images, and gripping firsthand accounts, Chin and Vasarhelyi deliver an exciting tale of adventure and inspiration.
