She climbs to conquer

Georgia Engelhard, accompanied by the Swiss mountain guide Ernest Feuz, stages a thrilling climb of Mount Victoria. Engelhard climbed Mount Victoria eight times in 1931 when she was 26. One of this trips was for filming the movie by the Canadian Pacific Railway cameraman Bill Olivier. During the filming, she and the crew were caught on South Peak in a horrific thunderstorm. 'The thunder was deadening and boomed back and forth from the rock walls, the lightning struck the rocks causing them to sing and spit flame. Our nailed boots and ice azes also spit fire, our hair stood on end.' The film was produced by the National Parks of Canada to promote tourism travel to the Canadian Rockies.
