Storyline: n the morning of May 10, 1996, climbers from two commercial expeditions start their final ascent toward the summit of Mount Everest, the highest point on Earth. With little warning, a violent storm strikes the mountain, engulfing the adventurers in one of the fiercest blizzards ever encountered by man. Challenged by the harshest conditions imaginable, the teams must endure blistering winds and freezing temperatures in an epic battle to survive against nearly impossible odds.
In 1992, mountaineer Robert “Rob” Edwin Hall from New Zealand, begun guiding amateur climbers on Mount Everest. His company “Adventure Consultants”, successfully led 19 clients to the summit without a single fatality. The 1996 Everest expedition consisted of eight clients and three guides, and was a good deal with Outside magazine for a story about the commercialization and the increasing demand for expeditions to Everest. On 11 May 1996, Rob’s team was joined by Scott Fischer’s Mountain Madness company, on a joint summit attempt. After continuous delays, and no fixed lines, the climbers were forced to wait furthermore, until the problems were fixed. By 2:00 pm (the time of safe return), not all of the climbers had reached the summit, so a descent was necessary. When at 5:00 pm a furious blizzard struck, disaster was at hand…
Six weeks before the initial climb, Rob and his team are in New Zealand ready to depart from the airport. He’s with the manager of the base camp, Helen Wilton (Emily Watson), and his friend/co-worker Guy Cotter (Sam Worthington). Rob informs his friends that he booked journalist Jon Krakauer (Michael Kelly) to do an article on them, which he was going to do for another expedition team, Mountain Madness. Rob later explains to his team the dangerous altitudes and temperatures of the Death Zone on Everest, which they hope to get past quick enough before things get really dodgy.
Before boarding the plane, Rob says goodbye to his pregnant wife Jan (Keira Knightley). Rob promises to return home for the birth. Jan later sends him a message to let him know that they’ll be having a girl.
The last shot is of Rob’s body, frozen and almost completely covered in snow. The final text states that Rob’s body is still up on Everest alongside the others that perished. We see photos of the real Rob Hall, Doug Hansen, Andy Harris, Yasuko Namba, and Scott Fischer. Beck Weathers lost his nose and both hands due to frostbite. Jan Arnold gave birth to a girl, whom she named Sarah. We then see a brief video clip of the real Sarah Arnold-Hall.
