Parce que la montagne était là

On May 23, 1971, a French expedition led by Robert Paragot successfully climbed the Makalu by its western pillar. Makalu is one of the five highest peaks in the world, in the Himalayas, on the Nepal-Tibetan border. Jean-Pierre Janssen and Lucien Bérardini film this expedition where Robert Paragot discusses the conditions of the expedition, life at altitude and his state of mind as an expedition leader. On the way back to the base camp, Jean-Pierre Janssen interviewed Lucien Berardini, Georges Payot, Jean-Claude Mosca, François Guillot and Jean-Paul Paris, all of whom had a decisive role in bringing Bernard Mellet and Yannick Seigneur to the summit.
