    Hold Fast

    Jim Aikman (2017)

    While making a summit attempt to an unclimbed peak in Nepal in 2016, Conrad Anker suffered a heart attack. With his climbing partner, David Lama, able to do little more than look on, Anker self-rescued from 20,000 feet. It marked the end of his long and storied career as a high-altitude mountaineer, but not his passion to climb. In Hold Fast, Anker returns to one of his favorite big wall climbs — El Cap, in Yosemite National Park. With him is Alex Wildman, an ardent amateur climber and close friend. The good news is that Wildman is a cardiac nurse. But he has never before climbed a big wall. And he has a serious health concern of his own.

    The Vaseline Research Everest '94 Expedition

    David Breashears (1994)

    A brief recount of the 1994 Everest Expedition to the Kangshung Face in Tibet. With Alex Lowe, Barry Blanchard, David Breashears, Steve Swenson, Sandy Hill. The Kangshung Face or East Face is the eastern-facing side of Mount Everest, one of the Tibetan sides of the mountain. It is 3,350 metres (11,000 ft) from its base on the Kangshung Glacier to the summit. Most of the upper part of the face is composed of hanging glaciers, while the lower part consists of steep rock buttresses with couloirs between them. It is considered to be a dangerous route of ascent, compared to the standard North Col and South Col routes, and it is the most remote face of the mountain, with a longer approach.
