This was a great documentary that plumbs the nature of being human
17 July 2012 | by homers_84606See all my reviews

I thought this was great movie and that it showed the lengths some people will go to to achieve a goal or to accomplish something that allows them to measure their grit and determination. The difficulty of achieving an Everest Summit is why it is so alluring - to try to overcome your fear, timidity, exhaustion, and the forces of nature to "get there" is a fabulous inspiration for people who have great challenges and difficulty in their lives. To say the climb is pointless or meaningless misses the point. That Everest Summiters are in great demand as motivational speakers says it all - we want people to inspire us to hang in there against the troubles of life.
