Jim Geiger attempted to climb Mount Everest. The circumstances that surround the filming of Jim's Mount Everest climb are terrifying. What was witnessed prior to the climb had to have played over and over in Jim's head during this brutal adventure. The single worst tragedy in Mount Everest history took place, prior to the climb and shooting of this film.
