The Film

The upper slopes of Mt Everest are a dangerous and forbidding place far beyond most human experience. Extreme altitude, cold, wind and terrifying exposure are the images that define the mountain. From Base Camp through the Khumbu Ice Fall to the Western Cwm to the treacherous Hillary step and finally the Summit a climb of Everest is a source of endless fascination.

Lead by Everest veteran Robert Link of Mountain-Link the team included sixth grade teacher Kim Gattone from Santa Fe New Mexico. They attempted the same route pioneered by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa in May of 1953.

Technology leaders WebTV and Quokka Sports provided extensive internet coverage in the context of the awe inspiring Himalayan Mountains.

Three-time Emmy award winning filmmaker and mountaineer Michael Brown of Serac Adventure Films was also part of the expedition. Michael and high altitude veteran guide Dave Hahn documented the climb for television and for a live Internet event.
