The Last Mountain

If you haven’t seen The Last Mountain it is currently streaming on BBC iPlayer.
It is not an easy watch, but an excellent documentary.

Yes, definitely worth a watch. Also, The Alpinist, which has been on in selected cinemas.

Unfortunately I don’t think there is any way to watch it here in NA, It looks really good though.

Nanga Parbat is known to be a difficult climb, and has earned the nickname Killer Mountain for its high number of climber fatalities :scream:

Currently on my to watch list.
I have already watched Alison’s Last Mountain which is also worth a watch, It has been shown on BBC4
It follows her husband and children’s journey to see the mountain that took her life.
Filmed just weeks after her death, when the children were very young.

The Alpinist was an excellent movie. It is at the same time both inspiring and cautionary.

Thanks for the link Mark. Like you say it’s an excellent film, quite moving but also rather sad.
