The story of Joe Simpson and Simon Yates' return to the mountain of Siula Grande for the making of the film 'Touching The Void'. The film recounts a fateful climb Joe Simpson and his mountaineering partner, Simon Yates, undertook in the Peruvian Andes in 1985. This making of the film Touching the Void throws up some interesting and possibly conflicting insights into what happened following the attempted rescue and subsequent survival of a young mountaineer on the west face of the Siula Grande. When Simon and Joe collaborated on the film in 2003, they had not seen one another for 10 years.
