Life on a Knife Edge Series Poster Web


Life on a Knife Edge is a 3-part series, produced in 2020 by Wilderness Mindset, featuring remote and unknown mountain ranges in Montana. Alex Maier draws a line on the map along the backbone of entire mountain ranges with the goal of hiking along the ridge line of the range. He’s working with limited information and must figure out how to traverse these ridge lines while he’s out there in the mountains. As with all untested routes, there is a lot of unknown and things rarely go to plan. Many of the situations that he finds himself in are class 3 or higher climbs. These are situations that many mountaineers would want ropes and rock climbing gear for. Alex is not trained in mountaineering so he must figure out a safe way through that terrain or simply avoid it.
