Bernd Arnold is one of the exceptionally gifted climbers of the 20th century. For two decades he made up some of the worlds hardest first ascents. Names like “Riders on the Storm“ or „Royal Flush“ in Patagonia are only some of them. Most of his routes he set up in the notorious german area of sandstone towers – Saxonian Switzerland. Some of them even barefoot.

In an emphatic short the 70 years old climbing pioneer bridges between success in climbing and inner experiences. From the roots of childhood to distant mountain regions and friendship he draws a line back home to present days.
