Everest chronicles one of the last 'pure climbs' before the mountain was over-run by corporate sponsorship and commerciality.

An eclectic and combative mix of characters go to climb the world's tallest and most historic peak, including Laurie Skreslit who has just lost his best friend in a climbing accident that he believes was his fault.

As the expedition treks toward Everest, angry conflicts between the expedition leaders do little to reassure the deep doubts Laurie has about climbing and the guilt he feels.

It's a story of triumph over adversity as Laurie digs deep inside to find the courage and determination to carry on his quest in a final desperate bid for the summit.
