China Jam: A Mountain Ride with Some Crazy Explorers and Musicians

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.

Synopsis from the Vimeo page:

“In their infinite quest for virgin big walls, Belgian adventurers and musicians Sean Villanueva O’Driscoll, Nicolas Favresse, Stephane Hanssens and their French teammate Evrard Wendenbaum, head in September 2013 to a remote valley in the westernmost region of China.

There, after a week of exploration of the surrounding glaciers, they find a fantastic 1200m vertical pillar, culminating at 5842m. The hard work of carrying their gear done in 6 days, they finally spend 14 more days on the wall to achieve this amazing ascent opening a breathtaking freeclimbing route with a lot of humor and playing unreal musical jams even while facing wounds, snow storms and harsh conditions.
