Swissway to Heaven

2021

Switzerland is a true paradise for multi-pitch climbing, as well as the country where Cedric Lachat was born and raised. Through his unique sense of humor and unbridled enthusiasm, experience the beauty and awe of five iconic peaks and mountain ranges: the Eiger, Gastlosen, Wendenstöcke, Lauterbrunnen, and Rätikon. In addition to footage of hard climbing (8a and up), the first ascensionists talk about the changes in gear and climbing over time, from traditional mountaineering to modern sport climbing.

Even though the general public is more familiar with Swiss cheese, chocolate, and watches, Swissway to Heaven takes us to the Pantheon of the hardest multi-pitch routes on the most prestigious walls, where former competition climber Cedric Lachat and his friends try out their vertical instincts amongst hoots of laughter. Swiss made – well made!
