Red Bull Illume: Die besten Kletterfotos

Diese Bilder lassen dich Jubeln, Staunen und das Adrenalin durch die Decke schießen
Von Thomas Wernhart

Beim Red Bull Illume dabei zu sein und dort auch noch zu gewinnen, ist wie einen Oscar abzuräumen. 5600 Fotografen haben 35.000 Bilder eingereicht und für die folgende Fotoshow haben sich ein paar von ihnen in fast unmögliche und brenzlige Situationen begeben. Also lehnt euch zurück und genießt die Show – es wird euch nicht lange am Sitz halten.
