Description

Joe Simpson has experienced a life filled with adventure, but marred by death. He has endured the painful attrition of climbing friends in accidents, which call into question the perilously exhilarating activity to which he has devoted his whole life. Probability is inexorably closing in. The tragic loss of a close friend forces a momentous decision on him - it is time to turn his back on the mountains that he has loved. Never more alive than when most at risk, he has come to see a last climb on the hooded, mile-high North face of the Eiger as the cathartic finale to his climbing career.
