    Lost on Everest

    Renan Ozturk (2019)

    Reaching 29,029 feet, Mount Everest has long captivated mountaineers of all stripes. But a peak that draws athletes and mountaineers to new heights isn’t without danger — or a dark side. Perhaps the peak’s greatest mystery is the missing body of Andrew “Sandy” Irvine who disappeared alongside George Leigh Mallory in 1924 just 800 vertical feet from the summit. In Lost on Everest, we follow along as a team of elite climbers with new intel on the location of his missing body set out to solve what may be mountaineering’s great mystery. Along with the body, the team hopes to find Irvine’s camera and the footage that could rewrite history.

    Mount Everest 1996 - Traum und Wirklichkeit

    Stefan Urlass (1996)

    The first Saxon Mount Everest Expedition attempted to climb the mountain in 1996. Without additional oxygen, high porters, or even a kitchen team, the Saxons climbed from the north side in Tibet up to 8,500 meters. They had to turn back only 350 meters below the summit. The team had to give up the summit to take part in the rescue of a Japanese climber. It was 1996, the year of the great Everest catastrophe, in which many climbers from various expeditions on the mountain died. The 14 members from Saxony were awarded the 'Fair Play Prize' by the city of Dresden for their expedition and their help on the mountain.

    Janhukot

    Matt Pycroft (2018)

    In May 2018, three British climbers Malcolm Bass, Paul Figg and Guy Buckingham set out to attempt the first ascent of Janhukot, a mountain buried deep in the heart of the Indian Garwhal Himalaya. Janhukot (6805m) has seen attempts as far back as the 1980s, and is surrounded by some of the jewels of Himalayan summits - Shivling, Meru, Kedar Dome. We follow the climbers throughout their expedition, as they document their experiences and give an insight into the emotional and physical challenges they encounter throughout their journey. ‘Janhukot’ explores not just the idea, but the reality that, with some sacrifice and training, ordinary people can do something extraordinary.
