This is a high-energy, high-spirits, high-altitudes cinematic adventure. China Jam, released a month ago by French producer Evrard Wendenbaum, who leads a small team of explorers to a remote alpine region in Western China to find fresh peaks to scale.
Passion for life runs in these guys veins, highlighted by the fact they’ll schlep a mandolin up the mountain, on top of all their gear, so they can have some cliff-face jams along the way.

There, after a week of exploration of the surrounding glaciers, they find a fantastic 1200m vertical pillar, culminating at 5842m.
