Getting To The Top Of Mt. Everest Takes Training
When one thinks of climbing Mt. Everest, we should all realize by now that this is no easy task. There are no stairs paving the perfect path nor an elevator whisking you to the top.
Climbing Mt. Everest is an intimate journey that will remind you of just how lovely and dangerous mother nature can be, if provoked.
In the film "Everest", two teams of climbers attempt to ascend into the heavens and achieve their dreams of touching the mountain top. Each team is led by a proven champion that has shown skill and courage multiple times over against all odds.
Rob Hall is one such champion, played by Jason Clarke that is shown in the film leading a group, while Scott Fischer, Gyllenhaal is another.
These two men and their teams of eager climbers embark on a routine ascension into the heavens, but along the way are met with a force greater than anyone could have imagined.
What starts out as a peaceful walk in the clouds, gradually becomes one of the grayest days in climbing history. So when you watch this film, be brave, be prepared and bring some Kleenex..lol You might get a little misty.
Going Back Down Everest Takes Courage
Now, it would seem to most that the hardest part of any great struggle is reaching the top and fulfilling our dreams.
But what most people don't tell you is that the getting to the top is a whole lot easier than retracing your steps back down the beaten path.
It can be all too easy to overlook the peril associated with many of the amazing feats we accomplish throughout life and as our climbers find out, it's the little things that have the biggest impact.
You know those little things like air, safety and discipline that keep us alive everyday? Well, let's just say, when those things are forgotten or made "less important" the most basic survival can become a challenge in itself.
"Everest" is a good example of why certain people succeed, as where others fail miserably.
But at the end of the day, if you do your best and persevere, you too will be capable of ascending man's limits.
After Watching, Everest...
You definitely don't have to worry about us ascending "Everest" anytime in the near future. But, like Scott and Rob demonstrate in the movie, we will accomplish our goals one step at a time.
So if you haven't yet watched, Everest, watch it today for the inspiration, realistic story and awesome displays of drive that made this a film worthy of being Unhinged.
