I was told about this series by my sister and was sorry that I had missed the episodes until I realized they were replayed on New Year's Eve.
This was by far one of the most interesting, intense, visually awesome specials that the Discovery channel has ever shown. The knowledge I gained from the show was astounding. The individual storylines about the lives of the climbers who risked so much to climb the Summit was amazing and inspiring, especially Mark Inglis,and Mogens Jensen, an ashmatic, who unfortunately was unable to make the entire climb. Actually, the entire group of climbers really tugged at my heart and soul with their drive and determination. My hat however, goes off to the Sherpas who, in my opinion, are the saviors of the Summit Climbers. I would buy the series if it became available. A definite must see!!!
