Interesting Title Cards (from IMDb):
Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay became the first climbers to summit Everest. Over the next 40 years, only top professional climbers attempted the same feat. One in four died.
1992: New Zealander Rob Hall pioneered the concept of commercial guiding on Everest for amateur climbers. Over the next four years his team, Adventure Consultants, successfully led 19 clients to summit without a single fatality.
1996: Other commercial operators follow Rob Hall's lead, including Scott Fischer's Mountain Madness. More than 20 expeditions compete to summit Everest in the same two week window.
Beck: When I'm at home I just got this big, black cloud following me. You know, like a depression? And when I'm out here on a mountain, any mountain...
Beck: It's just like it's a cure. I feel like I'm reborn.
Doug: So, you're happy now?
Beck: No, I'm starting to wonder. This is suffering, man. Yeah. This is suffering.
Doug: Yeah. Suffer a few more days, for the rest of your life you'll be a guy that got to the top of Everest.
Doug: there's an elementary school, back home. And I've been going and talking to the kids there and they actually helped me raise some of the money to come and gave me a flag to plant on the summit, and... So, I was thinking, maybe it's... They see a regular guy can, you know, follow impossible dreams, maybe they'll be inspired to do the same, I guess. I'm climbing Mount Everest because I can. Because to be able to climb that high and see that kind of beauty
that nobody ever sees, it'd be a crime not to.
Rob: For those of you who dare face their dreams, Adventure Consultants offers something
beyond the power of words to describe. And why don't we describe it in the brochure? Because it's mostly just pain. ... To put it simply, guys, human beings simply aren't built to function at the cruising altitude of a 747. Okay, once we get above here, above the South Col our bodies will be literally dying. It's not called the Death Zone for nothing, guys. So the game is, can we get you up to the top and down to the bottom before that happens? And I mean literally dying.
Rob: Yasuko. Why are you climbing Everest?
Yasuko: Uh... I'm 47 years old, I have reached six of the seven summits, so... Of course, now I have to reach the seventh.
