While a bit sensationalist and over the top at times, this short documentary on the logistics of climbing Everest is a solid introduction to what it takes to climb the world’s highest peak. The clip begins by acknowledging that Everest is often seen as the pinnacle of mountaineering success, despite the fact that there are much more difficult climbs out there. But once it finds its rhythm, this video becomes a solid look at why climbers flock to Everest in the first place and what it takes to get to the summit.
