In 1991, Jeff Lowe went on a solo mission up a line on the North Face of the Eiger—an accomplishment many considered crazy. The name of the route, Metanoia referenced a Greek term meaning “a fundamental change of thinking.”

It wasn’t until December 30, 2016—a whopping 25 years later—that this route finally saw its second ascent by climbers Thomas Huber, Stephan Siegrist, and Roger Schaeli. This week’s Friday Flick Pick features their epic adventure on Metanoia.
