For a certain section of humanity, exploration is a magnetic force. It’s a calling, a combination of intensity, novelty, and uncertainty. This is why elite rock climbers find first ascents irresistible.
But in today's climbing world, first ascents are also rare.
By chance, The North Face® athlete James Pearson discovered that Europe's biggest sea cliff remained unsummited.
He saw his opportunity to explore uncharted territory.
James, Cedar Wright, and Yuji Hirayama assembled at the foot of Cape Enniberg, the northmost point of the Faroe Islands. They looked up, 754 metres of loose rock, patchy grass, and certain danger.
Could they be the first to summit it?
'The Land of Maybe' grants unique access to the logistical, technical, and emotional challenges that elite athletes must endure to achieve the extraordinary. This is a film about a diverse group, united by a shared mission, and their overwhelming drive to tackle uncertainty head on.
“The Faroe Islands is a land that time seems to have forgotten, where you can see snow, rain, and sun all in the same day. The Land of Maybe is the perfect name for it. The only thing of which you can be certain is you’ll have an adventure you’ll never forget.”
James Pearson, The Land of Maybe
