In the climbing world, few tests—not even Everest or K2—are as daunting as the central peak of Meru, a technical, sheer wall in the north of India that has had less interaction with humanity than the surface of the moon. That, however, didn't stop Conrad Anker, Jimmy Chin, and Renan Ozturk from attempting to conquer it not once, but twice, returning to the hallowed mountain's shark-fin summit in 2011 for a harrowing, yet successful, conclusion to what they failed to finish in 2008. Now, four years later, the trio are offering an inside look at their mission—one of the most dangerous in climbing history—via a new documentary, Meru, that is sure to chill viewers to the bone and back again. If you think you can handle the cold and the craziness, check out the trailer above and prepare for the climb of a lifetime.

Unsurprisingly, this micro doc about the undertaking is grueling stuff, so make sure to check it out, just prepare yourself for some pretty grisly stuff (including eating a raw lizard and some subsequent vomiting) in advance.

Welcome to the future, everyone.
