Produced by the Seattle Mountain Rescue Council in 1953, featuring Ome Daiber (founder of Seattle Mountain Rescue), with Jim and Lou Whittaker. After World War II, returning soldiers and their families flocked to the mountains of the Pacific Northwest in search of recreation. This classic Ira Spring film was probably the first mountain safety film ever produced, it responded to a need to inform local citizens of possible dangers in the mountains. It also features some of the most notable mountaineers of the century, including Ome Daiber, and both Jim and Lou Whittaker. Today this film can still be used to further one of the objectives of the Mountain Rescue Association: public mountain safety education.
