Video: High and Hallowed: Everest 1963 – A Film About The First American Expedition To Everest

If you still haven’t had your fill of Everest this season then you’ll certainly want to check out the trailer for the film High and Hallowed: Everest 1963 which will be premiering at the MountainFilm Festival in Telluride in the next few days. The movie is directed by David Morton and Jake Norton and chronicles the famous 1963 American expedition which not only put the American on the summit, but also opened the incredibly tough West Ridge Route. Last year, a group of climbers that included the directors attempted to climb that route in anticipation of the 50th anniversary this year.

The film looks absolutely spectacular and I can’t wait to hear more about it after it makes its debut. Thanks to my friend Kate for sharing this with me!
