Loneliest Mountain, The

The enthralling story of an epic journey by six mountaineers to reach and climb Mount Minto in Antarctica, "the last wilderness on earth". Plagued by disasters that lost them weeks of time, threatened with being trapped in the frozen Ross Sea, but filming all the while, the six pushed on till they reached their goal. A blizzard prevented their first attempt at the climb but, with only one day's food remaining, they tried again, and succeeded. Then they had to get back to the shipÉ
