This past summer, photographer and filmmaker Corey Rich traveled to Pakistan to document David Lama and Peter Ortner’s attempt to climb the vaunted Trango Towers as part of the Mammut 150 Peak Project. One of the pieces of gear he took with him was a remote controlled helicopter that was equipped with video cameras, which allowed him to capture the climb like never before. The video below gives us a sneak peek at what he was able to do, and while the full film of the expedition is still in post-production, I think it’s safe to say that it’s shaping up to be an interesting project.
On an unrelated note, I now want one of these camera-equipped RC drones for myself!
