This documentary offers inspiring, stunning and shocking story-telling about one man’s quest to climb Mount Everest.

About the Event 

Summiting Mount Everest is a grueling and dangerous endeavor for even the most experienced climber. The world’s highest mountain is known to torture the mind, body and soul of those who dare to do what few have ever achieved. When 68-year-old great-grandfather Jim Geiger attempted to become the oldest American to summit the peak in 2014, what ensued was the worst disaster to date in mountaineering history.
