    Greenland - Ice Mountain

    Rosie Gloyns (2019)

    Episode of Expedition with Steve Backshall, a series in which the naturalist and explorer Steve Backshall takes us on a mission to visit parts of the world yet to be explored. The episode shows the second part of his arctic adventure. After kayaking the largest fjord in the world, Backshall attempts to summit an unclimbed mountain deep in Greenland’s Arctic wilderness. He faces many hazards - from rivers of freezing meltwater to quicksand and treacherous glacial ice. The Arctic is warming twice as fast as the rest of the planet which means Greenland’s ice sheet, over two kilometers thick in places, is melting. The climb lets Steve and his team look over an ancient habitat living on borrowed time.

    Once upon a mountain

    (1962)

    An old man remembers when his father introduced him to mountain climbing in the Alps of Tirol when he was a young boy. A mountain scenery is presented showing its flora and fauna and then we see the father and the boy approaching to the mountain face by a mountain path. On the rock face we see both men rock climbing up to the top, and at the end of the film we go back to the present tense and see the old man accessing the top of a mountain in summer using a modern chairlift in a ski resort. Surely the film was made using film footage from different origins, as the two men on the mountain path are different from those on the rock wall, which are men of similar ages.

    Gyachung Kang

    Surendra Singh Thapa (1986)

    Gyachung Kang 7952 m is located in the central Himalaya on the border between China and Nepal, thirty kilometers west of Everest, just near Cho Oyu. Only one previous expedition had climbed the mountain. In 1964 two members of a Japanese team had made the first ascent, climbing a snow-gully on the west flank of the south face and then the NW ridge avoiding the last rock step on the Tibetan side. One member had fallen and died below the summit. Since then nobody has attempted the peak. The selection of a route for the expedition involved a major difficulty because of total lack of past information except a photo of the south face in Shiro Sirahata's book.
