“A true story of love, survival, a pathological optimist, his indomitable spirit and a wheelchair… meet legendary alpinist Jeff Lowe.”

This film explores the incredible life and climbs of this visionary alpinist who continues to be the adaptable man he set out to be in his youth. Jeff’s indomitable spirit and incredible optimism both on and off the mountains epitomize a philosophy that celebrates life and the outdoors. Metanoia explores these themes in the iconic setting of the Swiss Alps.

If your company would like to support Jeff Lowe’s Metanoia please contact Connie Self at or 208.630.4477

Or support us on, a unique source of funding that will be used to re-create scenes from Jeff’s solo first ascent of Metanoia in the exact locations where they occurred on the North Face of the Eiger. Celebrated American climber, Josh Wharton will be the “climb in” for these re-creations. An attempt of a second ascent will also be filmed later this winter if conditions come in for Swiss climbing superstar, Ueli Steck.

You can also make tax-deductible contributions to our project partner OHIT, Inc a 501(c3) corporation whose mission is to celebrate the joys of climbing, secure access and preserve the mountain environment.
