/ Film on Netflix: The Climb
It's a true story, the protagonist is real, he did just really wing it.
In a way it is a good story, because it shows that a guy from a poor estate with little in the way of opportunity could break down barriers, by joining the Everest club on a whim, the domain of the white middle classes, he proved that climbing Everest if you have the drive and ambition really is possible for anyone and in the end all to just impress a girl, he never climbed again.
PS. He was on a guided trip, he lied about previous experience on the form, saying he had climbed Mont blanc, Kilimanjaro etc.
Love makes you irresponsable. Loved the romantic part of it but you are right, you can't just climb Everest like it;s your back yard tree..

Apparently there are 17 million UK citizens who seem to think they know more about economics than the vast majority of experts in that field.
I enjoyed the film, I took it for what it was, light entertainment. It didn't make me want to rush out and climb Everest on a whim anymore than Rocky made me want to rush into a boxing ring with BA Baracus
I agree, the girl was gorgeous.
