    Surrender to Everest

    Surrender to Everest

    Ned Kelly (1971)

    Norman Dyhrenfurth leads an expedition with thirty climbers from thirteen different countries including Don Whillans, Dougal Haston, Naomi Uemura, Pierre Mazeaud, and others. This optimistic expedition hopes to simultaneously climb the SW Face and the West Ridge Direct, but is fraught with one-upmanship, personality conflicts, and organizational problems. Harsh Bahuguna is caught out in a storm at Camp 3 and died despite the efforts of the rescue party. The expedition falters after his death, but Whillans and Haston push the SW Face route up to 27,400 feet (8,350 meters) before lack of equipment forces an end to the expedition.

    Everest - The South West Face

    Neil Armstrong (2017)

    In the face of overwhelming odds, dwindling oxygen supplies, freezing Jet Stream winds, avalanche, frostbite, widespread public negativity and the press reporting that failure was almost inevitable - A British team succeeded - Where all others had failed. On the 24th September 1975 at 6pm, Doug Scott and Dougal Haston stood at 29,095 ft on the world's highest mountain. They were the very first Britons to do so - And it was many days before the world even knew. This is a story of great leadership, teamwork, bravery, determination, sacrifice, tragedy, emotional journeys and a remarkable outcome.

    Everest - The hard way DVD

    Everest - The hard way

    Allen Jewhurst (1975)

    TV documentary of the 1975 British Expedition led by Chris Bonington up the South West Face of Everest. A band of cliffs on the southwest face, known as the Rock Band, had defeated five previous expeditions between 1969 and 1973. On September 20, Nick Estcourt and Paul Braithwaite achieved the first ascent of the Rock Band. The summit was reached by two teams: first on September 24 by Doug Scott and Dougal Haston, who survived the highest ever bivouac when they were benighted on the South Summit during their descent. On September 26 four more climbers attempted a second ascent. Peter Boardman and Sirdar Pertemba Sherpa were successful, but BBC cameraman Mick Burke, climbing alone after Martin Boysen turned back, failed to return from the summit.
