The Majlis al Jin in the Sultanate of Oman is one of the largest cave chambers on the planet, a gigantic, untouched cavern in one of the most fascinating countries in the Middle East. The cave posed the ultimate challenge for two of the world’s best extreme athletes: Stefan Glowacz and Chris Sharma. Their mission was to be the very first to climb out of its subterranean depths with their bare hands, free of technical assistance.
Could the two outlier athletes achieve what no other climber ever had? Could they defy gravity in the underground cathedral that would easily fit several passenger jets? The mission tested both of their limits. When one of them took a hard fall, their goal was thrown into jeopardy. But they didn’t give up.
Into the Light follows the two adventurers as they emerge from the dark and legendary chasm into Oman’s rocky desert.
