Why It’s So Good: Climbing the Ennedi

Camp 4 Collective is, in general, the pinnacle of what I someday hope to accomplish. Their films are engaging and inspiring stories with strong aesthetics.

In their video, Towers of the Ennedi, Camp 4 travels to the massive rock formations f the Ennedi desert in Chad with Yosemite climber Alex Honnold, UK trad climber James Pearson and New England mountaineer Mark Synnott.

What makes this video distinct – what separates it from any other climbing video – is its use of strong story telling. Combining the desert landscapes, the athleticism of these world-class climbers, and the novel expedition itself, this video deals with each climber’s spiritual journey.

What’s even better, is that Camp 4 decided to make a behind-the-scenes video as well. This was more fascinating than the video itself, as it delves into the technical side of actually filming this piece, which is harder than it looks.
