The Climb


TV Documentary 2006

On October 5th, 1982, 2 Canadians scaled more than twenty-nine thousand feet to become the first Canadian on Mount Everest. For Canadians, it was moment of unadulterated pride. For the climbers, it was a triumph littered with bitterness, broken relationships and the bodies of four dead men. The Climb is a documentary that weaves the dramatic trajectory of the 1982 Canadian climb of Everest with a contemporary odyssey - the return of the two summiteers, Laurie Skreslet and Pat Morrow, together to the mountain for the first time in twenty-four years.
