Documentary on the 2003 Everest expedition in which Yuichiro Miura, at the age of 70, became the oldest person to reach the top of the mountain. He did it accompanied by his son, Gota Miura. They both reached the summit of Mt. Cho Oyu (8,201m), the year before. The Everest record was later broken by himself. He climbed Everest in 2013 at the age of 80, also with his son. Miura was the first person to ski on Mount Everest on May 6, 1970. He descended nearly 4,200 vertical feet from the South Col. This feat was documented in 1975, in the film The Man Who Skied Down Everest.
