This compelling 30-minute film tracks the incredible story of Hilaree Nelson and Jim Morrison, as they attempt the first ski descent of the 27,940-foot Lhotse, the fourth-highest mountain in the world.
“Knowing Jim and Hilaree, they aren’t going there to talk about it. They’re going there to do it!”
Jimmy Chin - professional climber, photographer, and Academy Award-winning film director.
It’s the same route as when climbing Everest, until camp three, when you peel off the Everest route and climb straight up to the Lhotse summit, 8,516 m.
It’s not simply just another climbing/skiing story, it’s a look at personal risk, sacrifice, justification and a lure of the mountains which isn’t easily quelled.
