One hundred years on from the first Everest expedition, the film explores the history of the expeditions in 1921, 1922 and 1924. Julie Summers, the grandniece of Sandy Irvine, who vanished with George Mallory on their 1924 summit attempt, guides us through the history with contributions from many distinguished climbers. The film brings the past into the present using John Noel's original film and many images from the Alpine Club Collection.
A former President of the Alpine Club, he made many pioneering alpine style ascents in the greater ranges. He was a founding member of the Kendal Mountain Festival in 1980, and its director until 2008.
