    • Synopsis
    • In late December 1970 a small private plane arrived in Caracas Int.l Airport.
      On board there were three Americans: Paul Starub (the pilot), George Bogel (an experienced climber) and John Timo (the expedition leader). They meet for the first time with David Nott (a British climber and journalist).
      A few days later these four adventurers set off to conquer the Angel Falls, deep in the southeastern Venezuelan jungles.
      For ten days and nine nights they contended with this sheer 3,000 foot mass of rock, for the most part in drenching rain, and eventually without sleep or rations - no mean task considering that one of them had never climbed before while another was beginning to feel his age. They finally reached the top and came down again, setting a mark in climbing history - two previous expeditions had failed - and living an epic journey involving dangers, friendship, endurance and success.
      “Angels Four” is not only a marvellously gripping adventure story that takes you into a remote, wild region and demonstrates, with vivid images and powerful emotional moments how to climb a mountain, but it’s mainly about the human beings who climb it and their unique and incredible nature.
      It’s a dramatic and ironic tale of four “angels” pitting themselves against one of Nature’s most awesome creations.
