Many climbing films focus on the strength and skills of the climbers, as well as the difficulty of the routes, but this short film featuring Patagonia ambassador Steve House is a different sort of glimpse into the climbing world.

The minimalist visuals and voiceover of Shattered convey a little bit of the other side of climbing – the inner life and dialog of the climber as he searches for fulfillment and battles fear and the unknown.

“When you’ve given everything, what do you have left? After achieving his dream summit, an elite climber finds himself empty. Broken and untethered, he searches for a fulfillment more lasting than a faraway peak.”
