Jeff Lowe's Metanoia Launches New Website

The Metanoia Team is excited to announce the launch of a new website loaded with new videos, photos, and information about legendary alpinist Jeff Lowe and his upcoming film.

Following an incredibly succesful Outdoor Retailer Summer Market, the Metanoia Team is excited to announce the launch of a new website loaded with new videos, photos, and information about legendary alpinist Jeff Lowe and his upcoming film.

Jeff Lowe’s Metanoia explores extraordinary alpine accomplishments, from mountain top to wheelchair. Starting out as one of the world's youngest alpinists, Jeff Lowe has amassed a lifetime of impressive alpine accomplishments and contributions to the climbing world. He now faces the challenge of life in a wheelchair with the same characteristics and philosophies that won him unprecedented success on the world’s most impressive rock walls and in the great mountain ranges of the world.

Using the Eiger as a backdrop for Jeff Lowe’s life story, the film features footage of American climber Josh Wharton sampling sections of Metanoia, Lowe's route on the Eiger. For nine harrowing days in the winter of 1991 Jeff pieced together what Men’s Journal called an “unimaginable” route up the very center of the Eiger Norwand. Jeff Lowe’s Metanoia is the story behind a climb—an act of imagination—that has become legendary.

Visit our new website to view behind the scenes video clips, read archived articles of Jeff’s famous climbs, check out some amazing photos, and learn more about this unique feature length documentary that explores and preserves much of the history and values of the outdoor industry.

Visit the Metanoia Route page and see details of Jeff's solo first ascent of Metanoia in the winter 1991. Our google maps feature shows you a selection of Jeff's first ascents from around the world, with their grade and a few photos - more photos to come, so check back soon

Our video gallery includes footage of Josh Wharton, retrieving Jeff’s pack from the North Face of the Eiger after 20 years as well as a meeting between Jeff and famed Swiss climber, Ueli Steck. To read the full story of Jeff's pack and view photos of the contents, which were on display at the Liberty Mountain booth during OR, go here.
