SERIES | True Adventure

Mt Edith Cavell

This half-hour program was photographed by Dan Doody for True Adventure, a TV show hosted by Bill Burrud. Doody was a regular cameraman for this show. The program depicts the 1961 first ascent of the North Face of Mt Edith Cavelle in the Canadian Rockies by Fred Beckey, Yvon Chouinard and Dan Doody. The film opens with Chouinard and Beckey getting off the train at Jasper below Mt Edith Cavelle. The climbers take a bus to Jasper Park Lodge and, after visiting with a pair of young ladies, sort and pack their gear. The climbing footage appears to have been taken during two different sessions.
