1987, 59 Minutes

A high adventure film about Australian mountaineer Tim Macartney-Snape's incredible 1986 expedition to climb Gasherbrum IV - an 8000 metre symmetrical pyramid mountain of rock and ice on the border of Pakistan and China in the Karakoram Range of the western Himalaya. Gasherbrum IV (meaning "beautiful mountain") is the 17th highest mountain on Earth and the 6th highest in Pakistan.

Tim, as part of the US team, was the first in the team to reach the summit of the northwest ridge, and as he says "the climb was harder than Everest".
