Video: Climbing an Unclimbed Peak in the Indian Himalaya

Back in May o this year, three British climbers –– Malcolm Bass, Paul Figg and Guy Buckingham –– travels deep into the Indian Himalaya to attempt the first ascent of a Janhukot, a difficult and demanding peak that has turned back all attempts for decades. The three men filmed their expedition and soon we’ll be getting a full documentary about their experience there, but for now we’ll have to settle for the trailer below. If this is any indication of the final product, we could have the makings of another classic mountaineering film. The scenery and setting looks spectacular and there appears to be no shortage of drama either. Add this to the growing list of documentaries we’ll need to see in the near future, as it looks like a good one.
