Three elite climbers struggle to find their way through obsession and loss as they attempt to climb the Shark’s Fin on Mount Meru, one of the most coveted prizes in the high stakes game of Himalayan big wall climbing.

"Blindingly beautiful and meticulously assembled by the award-winning editor Bob Eisenhardt, Meru easily makes you forget that what you are watching is completely bananas."
- Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times
"Meru is absolutely worth the climb."
- Paula Mejia, Newsweek
"Harrowing and ultimately moving."
- Dennis Harvey, Variety
"Meru is an engaging and cumulatively exhilarating debut from wife-and-husband team Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin."
- Neil Young, Hollywood Reporter
"Filmed with such grandeur and intimacy that sometimes attempting to figure out how they made the incredible shots almost spoils them."
- Peter Keough, Boston Globe
"Though the "Meru" climbing and outdoor footage is spectacular, it is the personal struggle of each of the climbers, and the candid way they talk about them on camera, that give this film its considerable impact."
- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
