Fabi Buhl left the world of ski racing to find a love for climbing, his story captured in this beautiful black-and-white film by Stefan
Schlumpf and Diego Defilla. After fracturing both ankles while bouldering, Buhl transitioned to ropes, tackling some of the hardest trad and alpine lines
in the Alps.
