Blind climber Erik Weihenmayer and his team's highly successful ascent of Mount Everest along with four other remarkable milestones on the mountain. Time magazine called this the most successful Everest expedition of all time. The film beautifully captures the emotion, drama and humor of this historic climb.Written by
Wow, I just tried to walk around my office with my eyes closed and couldn't make it two feet - let alone to the top of Everest.
I've watched so many films and television shows about Everest, but this one easily tops them all. One of my favorite scenes is when Erik crosses his first ladder in the ice fall and you can hear him huffing and puffing and trying his best to walk across a ladder spanning a crevasse hundreds of feet deep.
As someone who has climbed Everest, the footage up high is amazing - nothing else comes close to the quality of shots above the 8000m level.
Overall this is an amazing story of accomplishing the impossible.
