The Spitzkoppe is a group of rocky mountain peaks located in the African country of Namibia. The name actually means “pointed dome” in German, and the location is sometimes referred to as the “Matterhorn of Namibia” as well. In this video, a group of mountain bikers travel to the Spitzkoppe where they are faced with some challenging rock climbing up its granite face, as well as some incredibly daring riding back down the mountain. It all makes for a fantastic short film that is fascinating to watch as they tackle some unbelievable lines that seem unrideable. That is, until they actually do ride them.
