A Life Well Lived

/ Wednesday, March 12 /

Truly inspirational.  

"Jim Whittaker was the first American to reach the summit of Everest. He made it to the top despite having run out of oxygen, a testament not only to his will but to his world view, epitomised in his simple but forceful observation that ‘risk is really important to life’. A Life Well Lived: Jim Whittaker and 50 Years of Everest incorporates remarkable archive footage from Whittaker’s Everest expeditions as he reflects on how climbing has shaped his life and how the sport has changed in the 50 years since his remarkable achievement."
