Mount Everest made headlines around the world in 2013 when it was reported that Ueli Steck and Simone Moro, one of the strongest duos in alpinism, were attacked by a crowd of angry Sherpas at Camp 2 while attempting a cutting edge new route on the highest — and most crowded — mountain in the world.
Fearing for their lives, Steck and Moro fled the mountain, and the incident sparked a flurry of gasps and angry recrimination: Sherpas, western climbers, guiding companies, even the legendary mountain itself were pounded with criticism from all sides. Amidst the bizarre event, the filmmakers were embedded with the climbing team and given an exclusive look at what happened that day, and why.
