Watch Free-Climber Scale a UNESCO World Heritage Site in India

Austrian professional free-climber Killian Fischhuber may be retired now, but the five-time Bouldering World Cup winner still ventures out on private feats of brilliance, far from the world stage.

Before hanging it up, Fischhuber shot a spellbinding personal travelogue in India, where he sought out old and new routes in Badami (famous for its red sandstone temples) and Hampi (a UNESCO World Heritage site also known for its stone temples).

Along with an Indian guide, watch as Fischhuber scales treacherous rock faces—sometimes with no footholds at all.
