National Geographic's Ultimate Explorer - Everest Extreme - 2001
Mt Everest it towers over everything else on earth making it the ultimate challenge for mountain climbers. It can't be conquered, but with extraordinary effort it can be climbed. But why, why climb this mountain when so much is out of your control from storms and avalanches to pulmonary and cerebral edema? Why are so many willing to risk their lives for no greater reason then the thrill of having done it? To find an answer Boyd Matson is headed to Everest. He knows he can't make the summit. Those who get to the top at over 29,000 feet are the world's best climbers, but I want to see who an ordinary person like me can go. Can I make it to base camp at 17,500 feet, and am I willing to go higher to risk climbing through the beautiful but deadly Khumbu Icefall?
