"Take It To The Limit"?
Artist and year?
1975. The Eagles, of course.[br]Very funny.
That's not a song. There's no way that's a song. [br]It's ridiculous.You made it up.
That is definitely a song. It is a good song, [br]and it is a winning song by the sound of it.
You give up?
"MacArthur Park." Richard Harris.[br]1968.
1968? You have to be geriatric. [br]I didn't even think they had recorded music back then.
Excuse me. I have a signed album[br]by Mr. Harris.
This is very cutting-edge stuff back then.
Peter, check your sister's belay.
Wanna tell him we're not 15 anymore?
Why bother? We'll always be 15.
hey dad, she needs a second cam.
That's not gonna hold in a fall.
Listen to me, Annie.
I don't care how experienced you are...
.. a smart climber always wears a belt[br]and suspenders.
- Dad...[br]- Two cams are safe, three's even better.
- Dad, I...[br]- I'm not kidding, Annie. Nobody's moving anywhere[br]until you put another cam in the wall.
Dad, I have three cams.[br]He's just yanking your chain.
We've got amateurs at twelve o'clock![br]Check your safety!
It's too much weight![br]It's not gonna hold!
Hold it together, you two!
Now get a grip.
We're getting out of this.
Annie, how close to the wall are we?
Keep still, goddamn it![br]Stop moving around! Stop!
Both of you...
...keep very still.
Try and stay calm.
The other cam... is moving?
Try and reach the wall.
See if you can anchor us back in.
Peter, I want you to get your knife.
Just do as I say.
Just get it!
You don't have much time here.
You have to do something for me, Peter. OK?
Cut me loose.
It's too much weight here.[br]One cam is never gonna hold it.
- I can get it in! I can get it in![br]- Do you understand what I'm saying? [br]You have to cut me loose...
.. If you don't do this, I will pull everybody down.[br]Now everybody's gonna die!
- No, no, noo![br]- You're wrong! It'll hold! It'll hold...[br]- Shut up, Annie!
It's one dead or three, Peter.[br]You understand what I'm saying?
- Just think about it.[br]- Don't make him do this!
You're gonna kill your sister.
Annie is gonna die if you don't do this.[br]Now cut the rope.
- No! I won't do it![br]- Just cut the rope!
- I can't![br]- Stop it!
Any second that cam is gonna come out of that wall[br]and Annie and you are gonna die!
- Is that what you want? You're gonna kill your sister![br]- Stop it!
Now cut the damn rope! Cut it!
Doesn't matter about me. Just cut it.
We're running out of time here!
Don't do it, Peter!
Just cut it! Noobdy's gonna blame you for it![br]Just cut it, Peter!
Annie and you are gonna die![br]Just cut it, Peter!
We're cleared for the Siachen glacier.[br]There's a doctor's on standby.
I was heading down there anyway.[br]Mail and supplies.
I can drop you back on my way back[br]to K2 base camp.
I tried to get up and see you a few days ago.
But the weather closed in.
Annie's at base camp.[br]Arrived last week.
Would you like a tea, Peter?
No, I'm fine.
You must try the tea. It's very good.[br]Indian, of course.
We may be at war with them,[br]but there's no point in overreacting. Their tea's the best.
- Forgive me. Mr. Garrett, isn't it?[br]-Yes.
National Geographic is always welcome.
They're the only westerners who ever come to[br]Pakistan without wanting to conquer something.
The colonel's angry. Only 25% of his[br]medical supplies are onboard.
And three days late.[br]Look at this place.
I've been here six years, I've lost over 800 men.[br]Not one to the enemy.
I.. I don't understand. The chopper was full of stuff.
Not for my men, Mr. Garrett.
For whealthy americans who can pay 2 or 3 million $[br]for climbing permits.
Elliot Vaughn, the entrepreneur.
He's got about 40 people with him. He's gonna try to K2.[br]I've been seconded to his team.
Seconded or sold?
That's probably a question only a general[br]in Islamabad can answer.
Three o'clock.[br]Time to wake up the Indians.
So, I think, Annie's coming in with Vaughn's team?
She's leading a WNN documentary crew.
They're going up the mountain[br]with him.
Have you seen her?
No. Not yet. One of the guides told me.
What about Vaughn?[br]What's he all about?
Aa, pretty much what you'd expect, really.[br]Sensitive, kind, modest.
You know, your typical billionaire.
Four years ago he was part of an american team [br]that took on the south face.
Covered 900 feet from the top[br]when weather closed in.
Twenty-four hours in the death zone.
Next morning, he walked down.[br]Now, I don't care what anybody says. He's a bloody good climber.
- Yeah, got your update coming through, Annie.[br]- What's up?
That cyclone's still tracking fast[br]from southeast.
Let me know if anything changes.
What are you...?
Just happened to be in the area.
I heard WNN hired you. And you're[br]hosting it. Congrats.
Well, they needed someone who could climb K2[br]and look presentable.
Not exactly a rush.
That's not true. They wanted the best.
I read about you on the Eiger.[br]The fastest female ascent.
Dad would be proud.
So, when you're leaving?
Early tomorrow morning. We want to[br]be summiting by 2 o'clock Wednesday.
What does the mountain say about that?
I mean I was... thought you laid siege to it, [br]kind'a...
made a run on it when you could...[br]I didn't know you could schedule it.
It's a plan, Peter, that's all.
Vaughn's aggressive guy. [br]But he knows what he wants and he goes for it.
I admire him.
How long have you known him?
Wherever you're trying to go with this,[br]you're wrong.
I never let anybody affect my climbing.
Was that two of them, Cyril?
Or has this stuff just gotten[br]better than we thought?
- Frank.[br]- Good to see you.
- Tommy McLaren. Colorado Kid.[br]- You ready to go?
You lead, I'll follow.
There's my leading lady. Hi, Annie.
- How was your trip?[br]- I think my stomach's still up there.
Luckily I passed on the eggs Benedict.
Excuse me for a minute.
Ed Viesturs.[br]It's an honor to meet you.
- Elliot Vaughn.[br]- Nice to meet you.
Hey, you wouldn't believe this guy.[br]Five times up to Everest.
The only man to climb 12 of the world's[br]14 highest peaks.
All without oxygen.
Rock on. By comparison, all of us[br]are merely amateurs.
- It's a real honor, Ed.[br]- Welcome to base camp.
Outdoors magazine wants[br]to do an interview with you.
"Bankruptcy at High Altitude."
How much can we...
I could go and come back, or....
Looking for Skip?
Try the command tent.
I'm Peter Garrett.
- Good to meet you.[br]- Good to meet you.
Got your message.[br]It's a bad luck about your porter.
Four new ones you can meet tomorrow.[br]Other supplies you need there's no problem.
Swedish hooker's taking a little longer[br]than I thought.
Anyway, no shortage of entertainment 'round here.[br]You saw Mr. Vaughn fly in?
He's kinda' hard to miss. What's this[br]about him climbing to a deadline?
- Friend of yours, is he?[br]- No. My sister's climbing with him.
Vaughn's got this publicity stunt.[br]He's launching a new airline, Majestic Air.
Stands on the top of K2 waving[br]as the inaugural flight goes overhead.
Are you serious?
I'm deadly serious.
Your sister's in good hands. Nobody knows[br]these hills better than Tommy McLaren.
Obviously, he told Vaughn he can get him up there.[br]I know I did.
I'd have told him anything[br]for a million bucks.
Is that what he's spending?
That's just for Tom. Bought his[br]company out for the entire season.
Not that I'm pissed off, or anything.[br]Take a look to what I get to drag to the top.
56-year-old movie producer[br]with dysfunctional bowel syndrome.
He's got the runs, mate. Permanently.
Bench brothers have taken a bet[br]he won't make it past 18,000.
- What do you think?[br]- What do I think?
I think it depends on the odds. I'm so broke I might have[br]to shove him in a crevasse myself.
This is Monique, our base camp manager[br]and medic. Monique, Peter.
We've met. You should look at these.
Don't mind her. She's French-Canadian.
Some days she's Canadian[br]and can be quite pleasant.
Today, she's obviously French.
How about some Spanish mackerel[br]for the bow?
And I... and I'm Cyril. I'm not much,[br]but I'm all I think about.
That's true and you gotta watch him, cause he's like a dog.
If he sees something, he tries to shag it. [br]If he can't shag it, he tries to eat it.
If he can't eat it, he pisses on it.
But, you know, it's easy to tell us apart,[br]because I'm the shy one.
No, no, no, seņorita.
Here you go, mate.[br]Have a drink on Mr. Vaughn.
What time's the laser show?
Is this thing on?
Everybody hear me all right?
Well, you're the lucky ones.
Welcome to the highest party[br]in the world!
Okay, maybe I did overdo it[br]just a little bit.
Four years ago, I came here[br]with a dream to climb K2.
The toughest mountain in the world.
As most of you know,[br]that attempt ended in tragedy.
On Wednesday,[br]with the help of Tom McLaren...
.. I intend to fulfill that dream.
And while I'm at it, take care[br]of a little business, Texas style.
At 0900 hours, Greenwich Mean Time...
.. the inaugural flight of Majestic[br]Air will fly over the summit...
.. and we'll be there to wave them on!
To all the other teams climbing this season,[br]I'd just like to say be safe...
.. and good luck.
Let's kick up our heels[br]and join the barbecue!
What about the weather, Mr. Vaughn?
Well, we're hoping for the best.[br]Do you know something we don't?
The weather closes in[br]and people die up there.
Or don't you have to worry about that?
Anybody who doesn't worry about that is a fool.[br]Of course we do.
Brian Maki did a high-atmosphere[br]analysis of the last 4 decades. Brian!
Most years there's a 9-to-12-day lull[br]before the fall storms start.
On August 2nd, we calculate[br]we have an 82% chance of fine weather.
Give me odds like that[br]in the oil business, I'd be a rich man.
Who's the leader, Mr. Vaughn?
Who makes decisions on the mountain [br]that mean other people live or die?
Who plays God, so to speak?
There can be only one leader.[br]It's always the best climber.
In this case I've made it clear to everyone.[br]Tom McLaren is that man.
Even the Pakistanis agree.[br]They're giving you a 21-gun salute.
Okay, let's party!
Thanks for that, Elliot. Really nice.
You climb as good as you talk,[br]you'll get there.
You know that old guy[br]who was asking questions?
Remember dad used to talk about him?
They were in the service together.[br]He was the army ranger...
Of course I remember.
I miss him, Annie.[br]I miss him just as much as...
I can't talk about it.
You never have.
There's nothing to say.[br]He's gone, Peter.
Look, you can blame me all you want...
...but that last cam would've failed.
It held the two of us.
You want to do this?[br]Okay, fine, let's do it.
You didn't give it a chance.
- He knew it wouldn't hold either.[br]- Of course he didn't.
We were his life, Peter.
He would've rather died than take[br]a chance that anything might happen to us.
I think we owed him the same.
But I did what I thought was right.
If you're so right, how come you never climbed again? [br]How come you've never been to his grave?
I'm not going up there for a TV show, Peter.[br]I'm going up there for him.
I wanna be the person[br]he always wanted me to be.
And youknow something, [br]when I'm up there, I feel close to him.
I touch his soul.
Take care up there.
This is it.
Wish you were going with me.
Not this time, kiddo.You take care up there.[br]It's gotta be a great day for Texas.
What is it?
Spindrift coming off the top.
That's local. If something was coming in, [br]it'd show on the other peaks.
Your sister's fine, man.[br]You look after yourself.
You too. Thanks for everything.
Understood, Tom.[br]You guys take good care up there.
Thanks, base. Out.
Well, you heard it.
Computer model shows it's building.
So, that's a concern.
We're about an hour from[br]the bottleneck, right?
I'd say we kick in the ass and get up there.
If it gets any worse,[br]we'll shelter under the ice cliff, be back when it passes.
If it comes in fast, we're totally in the mountain,[br]we're totally exposed out there.
It's not coming in fast.[br]He said it's slow-moving.
There's a 70% chance[br]it's gonna turn east and miss us.
I'm not gonna risk a storm.[br]Not at 26,000.
No. Nobody's suggesting anything stupid.[br]Sure the weather could turn.
But, right now, the odds are with us.[br]We're five hours from the summit.
We turn back now, that's it.[br]We've lost our window.
I know. Elliot, I'm aware of that.[br]It's my responsibility.
But I'm not gonna let a marketing campaign[br]compromise the safety of my group.
Marketing campaign? You think what this is[br]about?
Come on, Tom.[br]This is about getting to the top.
I don't give a shit[br]about the publicity.
This is a life statement for me.
We're only 500 feet from[br]the bottleneck. I think we should keep going.
980 hecto-Pascals and falling. This just came in.
- Lenticular cloud to the southeast.[br]Wind gusts at 80 knots, rising.[br]- Thanks, Eddie.
Just spoken to Tom. He's going on.[br]Kamboo, what's base camp pressure?
Pressure's dropped two points[br]in like four hours.
Hey Lucky, you made your case. We listened.[br]We took a decision.
20% is way too high to risk. If you're not gonna bother [br]with my answer what the hell I'm doing here?
I'll assess the risk, thank you very much.
As to why you're here, if you're not with the team,[br]I'm beginning to ask myself the same question.
I'm Peter Garrett, Annie's brother.[br]Just wanna check McLaren's pulling them back.
Yeah, we're on target. They're going on.
The wind's hit the peak to the south.[br]What's your satellite show?
We've assessed the satellite data.[br]We're going up.
It shows bad air coming in from India.
What the hell are you guys doing?
- How high are they?[br]- 26,000.
- What the hell are you doing?![br]- Warning my sister!
Leave it! That's enough!
Tom McLaren, come in.
Tom McLaren, this is base camp.[br]Do you copy?
Tom McLaren, do you read?
Come in, base.
Tom, this is Peter Garrett speaking.
You've got a major storm coming in from the south.[br]You've gotta start down.
Who is this?
Peter Garrett.[br]You copy about the storm?
Where's Frank Williams?[br]Put Frank Williams on.
Tom, Skip here. [br]We're looking at the weather screens.
If this doesn't turn, you're gonna be in big trouble. [br]Suggest that you turn back immediately.
- Yeah.[br]- Tom, do you copy?
Yeah, I copy that.[br]Thanks. Thanks, Skip. Out.
OK. How we're doing?
That's it. I'm pulling the plug.
- Wait, wait, wait, hold on.[br]- We're going down.
- Just hold on for a minute.[br]- I'm sorry, Elliot. I am.
But you are paying me to make these decisions.
I thought I was paying you to get me to the top.
Oh, Jesus Christ! [br]Hey Elliot, you told me I was in charge up here.
You are! What is the problem? [br]Why are you vacillating?
Why? Because some second-rate guide[br]got on the radio?
Nobody knows this mountain [br]better than Skip Taylor.
Skip Taylor's a hustler. [br]He was jockeying me to be in your boots.
Don't crap out on me now.
Come on, I mean, what did you think?
She was just gonna lift up her skirt[br]and pull her panties down for us?
Is this how you got up to Everest twice?
I'm going down.
Go down. Go on. Sit it out.
The storm will turn East as predicted [br]and you'll spend the rest of your life living it down.
I'd say that should do wonders[br]for your business.
I'm sorry, can I? Please.
We're going back!
We don't have a choice![br]We are dead on the ridge! So, let's go!
Annie, can you hear me?
I'm all right! I'm safe!
I'm fine! We're okay!
Annie, it's Peter. Are you there?[br]Can you hear me?
Come in, base, this is summit team.[br]Do you read me?
Anybody, do you read me? [br]This is Vaughn summit team. Come in.
Vaughn summit team, this is base camp.[br]Do you copy? Over.
Summit team, this is base camp.
If you're gonna do that,[br]do it outside.
Base, this is summit team.[br]Are you trying to contact us?
Wait. Here. Let me.
Oh, my God. That's Morse code.
My dad taught us when we were kids.[br]Said,if we got lost, it could save your life.
Smart man, your father.
He sure was.
There's three of them.
I'm sorry, Kareem.
You say there are three.
Maybe there are others.
Tell them we can't keep talking.[br]We gotta save power.
What's he saying, Annie?
They're coming to get us.
It's not gonna be just snow.[br]I mean it's gonna be ice and rock.
We're gonna need special tools.[br]I don't know how much of this stuff we have round here.
And how do you get it[br]up there, Mr. Garrett?
Then we dig with our bare hands[br]if we have to.
Do whatever it takes. We have more than[br]enough guys here to get this done.
Jesus. What the hell do you want to do?[br]Just leave them there?
Look. You can't ask people to work out there.
Now, you've never been that high. [br]Just staying alive up there, is...
So we just walk away and forget about them?[br]Is that what you're saying?
I figure they had one fuel can each. [br]That means they can melt ice and rehydrate with water for a day.
At 26,000, without it,[br]their lungs fill with fluid.
That's pulmonary edema.[br]They die within another 12.
That gives us a window of 36 hours.
My dad told me, Montgomery Wick speed-summited in 24.
We're not Montgomery Wick.
Even if we were, how long does that[br]leave to get through the rock and ice?
We don't know their exact location.[br]How long is that gonna take?
I won't let Annie die.
So what are we gonna do?
Nitroglycerin, Mr. Garrett.
I wouldn't touch it[br]with one of those English barge poles.
The contract was to use it to blast rock[br]for the gun emplacements.
It's low-freezing[br]and more powerful than symtex.
My responsibility ends at that door.
Now, I want to make one thing absolutely clear, Mr. Garrett.[br]This is your decision.
It's got nothing[br]to do with the Pakistani army.
Which is a legal way of saying[br]I think it's madness.
A magnificent madness, though.
Skip, don't move your feet.
Everybody keep very still.
Let me get this straight.[br]You want to go up that hill...
...with nitro on your back[br]and hope that it doesn't jolt? Is that right?
A hundred thousand sperm[br]and you were the fastest?
Skip here's agreed to go,[br]so I need four more.
That's gonna be a speed ascent,[br]climbing in pairs, one canister per team.
People are gonna share?[br]Won't everyone want their own bomb?
You're the best climber up here.
I'm not one to walk away from something like this,[br]but I think it's suicide.
If we just leave them up there,[br]what do you call that?
It's reality. You're willing[br]to risk six lives for the sake of three?
How do you feel about that?
The same way you do.
Your best friend died on Everest, didn't he?.[br]Well say, What if it was him up there right now?
I will go.
Ali is my cousin. It is my duty.
How about it, Mal? You and Cyril[br]have been up there before.
I mean, why would we wanna leave this place?
Luxurious accommodation.[br]Fine cuisine.
Sultry weather.[br]Frostbite's off my dick.
You know, I reckon we should wait[br]until they chuck in a ski lift.
Damn good idea, man. Imagine coming to the[br]Himalayas and actually climbing.
Especially when you have[br]to complete your autobiography.
And rustle up those all-important[br]endorsements. You wankers!
What's bloody wrong with you?!
I need one more.
I'll write a check now[br]for anyone who goes.
Whether Elliot makes it or not,[br]I'll be waiting when you get back.
Half a million bucks.
Does that include the tip?
My brother has talked to the military. [br]They've got explosives.
[br]Says they're gonna blast their way down.
Blast their way down.
How are they gonna find us?[br]We might as well be on Mars.
It's not a question of how,[br]it's how long.
It's time that's gonna kill us.[br]We have to lay down a schedule.
A regimen we all adhere to.
Edema sets in[br]if we don't keep drinking.
Now, I figure, three water bottles...
...that's half a cup each,[br]every 2 hours.
After that, fuel cells to melt ice,[br]and finally...
...we use the dex syringes.
Chances are we're all gonna get[br]pretty sick...
...but if we keep to the schedule,[br]keep to it...
...maybe we can hold out.
Annie, we need to give them the grid reference [br]for our last known position. Closest you can figure.
She says they were about 300 feet[br]above the Anvil, heading down east by south-east.
The shoulder ice field.
I checked their climbing manifest.[br]This is what they have.
We leave at dawn.[br]They got 22 hours if they're lucky.
How high can we chopper in?
Rasul says 21,000.[br]Any higher, the air's too thin.
He drops us off.[br]How fast can we get there?
Negrotto Col's the only place we can[br]land. From there, 27 hours.
Five hours short.
We need Montgomery Wick. [br]He's the only man who's ever done it faster.
You think he'll do it?
Four years ago, there's this big storm comes out of nowhere.[br]Blows an American team off the hill.
Now, there's nine of them up there, [br]including his wife. She was a guide.
He knows is nothing he can do to help her, [br]but he goes anyway. The only one who did.
He lost all his toes to frostbite[br]but dragged 3 guys off the mountain.
They owe their lives to him.[br]What do you reckon?
Where is he?
On the mountain.[br]Up the shoulder I guess, it's where he always goes.
They never found his wife's body,[br]so he keeps looking.
The guy's a lunatic.
That's just what we need.
Yeah. Strap on the nitro.
That's a bloody great idea.[br]Smoking right next to the nitro.
Although, bro and I here [br]we hoped that you'd blow us.
Why are you going?
The money, of course.
Skip hasn't paid anyone in months.[br]Maybe you know of a better way out here?
Can you climb?
Peter wants to know if I can climb.
Worst I've seen.[br]Couldn't climb a ladder.
You're that good, huh?
Yeah. But it was a very tall ladder.
What the hell are you doing?
I'm trying to kiss my ass goodbye.
If the weather's cleared,[br]they'll be on their way.
And your brother?
Has he climbed since Utah?
People say he lost his nerve.
Have you heard that?
Yeah, I've heard that.
It's a pack! Quick!
I'm not interested.
Look, you went once before.[br]Three men owe you their lives to you.
Four years ago.[br]Now I just climb for myself.
My father was a climber. Royce Garrett. [br]Climbed Everest with you.
I don't give a damn. I don't live my life[br]so you have someone to look up to.
My sister's dying up there, Mr. Wick.[br] How can you just ignore that?
Before you lecture me,[br]get your facts straight.
It'll make it less embarrassing.
Up there, you're not dying, Mr. Garrett. [br]You're dead.
What the hell happened to you?
Vaughn's people are offering 500,000$[br]to anyone that goes.
Maybe that'll make a difference.
Why would they do that?
He's one of them.
What's their supply situation?
Enough for 22 hours.
Who's coordinating at base?
-Vaughn's people.[br]-That's a mistake.
I'll need someone there I can trust.[br]Taylor, you know the mountain better than anyone.
What are you talking about?[br]Skip's one of the best climbers. We're gonna need him.
Before we get started, let's agree on one thing:[br]This is not one of those climbing democracies.
On a rescue mission, we don't vote,[br]we don't question, we don't argue.
You listen and do exactly as I say.[br]Chopper will pick you up on the way back.
Right. Here's how we'll split it up.[br]Malcolm, you'll climb with Kareem.
- Cyril, you'll... [br]- What? No, I bloody won't.
You've been up the mountain too long man,[br]you've forgotten the rules.
Never eat at a place called "Ma's"...
.. don't play cards with a fellow named Doc...
.. and whatever those you mate you never...[br].. never-ever climb with someone you don't know.
I'll be going with my brother.
Frankly, I'd rather climb[br]with the Sheila.
I'll tell you my rules: I putting a strong climber[br]with a weaker one.
You'll climb with Kareem.
Mr. Garrett,[br]you'll be climbing with me.
Cyril. Guess what?
Come on, darling.[br]Give us a smile, eh!
You know, it's the second best thing[br]you can do with your lips.
We'll take the west ridge.[br]Cyril, up through the Mushroom.
Malcolm, Hockey Stick Gully.
I've been up on all of them. [br]Speed's about the same.
We're as high as I can take you!
Move it! I can't hold it for long!
I'm having trouble[br]maintaining altitude.
Get the hell out of here! We're gonna burn!
Go! Go! Move it! Move it!
Grab my hand, damn it! Grab it!
Come on! Come on!
He needs dex. Now.
We stick to the schedule.
Another nine hours, the water runs out.[br]We're gonna need it. Our lives depend on it.
He's gonna die if he doesn't get it.
He will anyway.
Come on, Annie.
We both know Tom isn't going anywhere.
You've done your best. You have.
We can't waste resources[br]on a lost cause.
Saving somebody's life[br]is not a lost cause.
It is, if you know[br]that can't be saved.
Why should three people die[br]if two can live?
Okay. If that's what you think,[br]why don't you go and tell him yourself?
Tom, can you hear me?
- Don't listen to...[br]- He has a right to know!
You're a climber, Tom. A pro.
You know the reality.[br]Even if they get to us in time...
.. they're not gonna be able to carry you down.[br]Not from this altitude.
Now, Annie wants to give you the dex.[br]I understand that, I do.
But you and I know it's just[br]delaying what's inevitable.
Just lie here and die, Elliot?
Is that what you're telling me?
I'm not telling you anything.[br]I'm asking you to respect life...
.. not waste it.
- If I was in your position...[br]- You're not in my position!
That's right, I'm not.
Understand something. You're not just[br]killing me. You're killing her too.
Look. We're on a bit of a deadline, mate.[br]Can we just leave this till later?
I mean, he's all right, isn't he,[br]this Allah bloke?
He's not gonna strike you dead[br]if you miss one prayer, is he?
All right. One prayer.
Under these circumstances...
.. what harm can it do?
Do Muslims believe in Hell, Kareem?
So if that thing there blows...
...and I don't believe in Allah,[br]I'm going to Hell?
Is that what you reckon?
You're all the bloody same,[br]aren't you?
Born-agains say I don't believe[br]in Jesus, so I'll go to hell.
Jews say I do believe in Jesus,[br]I'll go to Hell.
Catholics say I don't believe[br]in the pope, I'll go to Hell.
So any way you look at it,[br]I'm in the shit.
Well, go on, then. What did he say?
We gonna die up here or what?
All men die, my friend.
But Allah says it is what we do[br]before we die that counts.
Jet stream's rising. So, I'd say[br]all clear for the next 48 hours.
Wick, do you copy?
Pressure's up. You have clearing skies[br]and light winds. Over.
How long is it gonna last?
You're good for the next 48 hours.
What is your exact position? Over.
Rock wall, about 400 feet[br]above Negrotto Col.
What's the hold up? I thought you'd be at the top by now.
Yeah, so did I. What's the status[br]at 26,000? How's the girl?
As far as I can tell, okay.[br]McLaren's serious. Internal injuries. Over.
Keep me informed.
What is this with you and Vaughn?
You're too slow, Mr. Garrett.[br]You've gotta move faster.
Take your hands off me.
It's not your concern.
If it involves my sister,[br]it's my concern.
I made it clear.[br]No arguments, no questions.
Look, if you've got another agenda...
.. why don't you turn around and go back?[br]I don't need you.
Your sister will be dead in 14 hours.
I've got you. I've got you.
You're as crazy as your old man.
You did the right thing[br]to cut the rope.
Any good climber would have.
If Royce had had the knife,[br]he'd have done it himself.
I just got some spindrift in my lungs.
Summit team, this is alpha team.[br]Do you read?
This is summit team. Come in, alpha.[br]This is summit team.
Annie Garrett, is that you?
It's Elliot Vaughn. Who's this?
- How many are you?[br]- Three teams, different routes.
I'm with Peter Garrett.
I thought you only climbed solo, Wick.
Rescue missions are different.
What's your location?
West ridge, 23,000.
You'll have to climb faster.
Tell Garrett his sister has got edema.[br]That oughta speed him up.
Wick! Wick, this is Annie Garrett!
Wick! Do you read, Wick?
She needs dex.
It's too soon. She'll have to wait.
I told you.
I told you not to let her[br]give it to you.
You saddled up that pony,[br]now she can ride it.
Vaughn, you're not sick!
We hold to the schedule.
- It's the only way to stay alive.[br]- For you, maybe.
You know, Tom, intelligence doesn't[br]threaten me. Stupidity does.
You arrogant prick!
We wouldn't be down here[br]if it wasn't for you.
You were the leader, Tom.
None of us are gonna make it.
You want to survive?
Go and get it.
That's what I thought.
Use your axe!
- Cyril! Cyril![br]- I'm here!
It's coming through!
Hang on! It's gonna be okay!
Just hang on.
That's all there is.
You see these rocks to your left?
Yeah, I can see 'em!
I'm gonna swing you.
Cyril! Cyril, are you there?[br]Peter, are you there?
Malcolm! This is Peter!
I repeat, this is Peter.
- It wasn't us![br]- Cyril, are you answering, you bastard!
Cyril, are you there?
Damn it, you answer me!
Nag, nag, nag.
They always bloody nag.
They could still be alive.
I'm going back.
Your sister has pulmonary edema.[br]We don't have the time.
Monique and Cyril are question marks.
Your sister is not.
Bro, I'm sorry.
We gotta go.
You gotta straighten it.
Like I said, It's gonna be fine. Just look me...
Don't bullshit me, Peter.[br]I'm a nurse.
Where were you going?
What are you talking about? Just get on with it!
You said you were taking the money to get out of here. [br]Now, where were you going?
I did two years of premed.[br]I wanted to finish it.
Any career worth this?
Two years on Everest, three at K2.[br]I've had enough.
Skip makes the Pakistanys look[br]well-organized.[br]To the bargain, he's a sexist son of a bitch.
- How long you've been sleeping with him?[br]- Two years, and screw...
.. I think you should turn back.
Wick, do you copy?
Wick, this is base camp. Do you copy?
Come in, base.
The nitro reacts to the sun.
I repeat, get the nitro out of the sun.
Get that goddamn pack out of the sun!
It's gonna blow!
It's gonna blow!
Get the pack in the shade!
The nitro! It's gonna blow![br]Get it out of the sun!
In the shade! There it is!
Malcolm! Malcom, can you hear me?
It's not their call time! They can't hear you!
Malcolm, do you read?!
You take the shoulder.[br]I'll try the ridge.
Malcolm! Kareem! Can you hear me?!
You guys! Your radio!
Turn on your radio!
Come in, Peter.
Are you listening?
Malcolm, get the nitro in the shade! Can you copy me?
Please, Peter, repeat.[br]I don't understand.
Get the nitro into the shade right now or it will blow! [br]Do you understand? It will blow!
Don't touch her.
Is this what you're looking for?
Four years ago, an American team[br]got blown off the mountain.
She was the guide.
What happened?[br]She take shelter with Vaughn?
Twenty-four, thirty-six hours.[br]I figure she died of edema.
Wouldn't have happenned [br]if she'd had dex with her.
You're wasting time.
What do you do? He used it for himself?[br]Is that what you think?
- Answer me, damn it![br]- Of course he did!
How long have you known?
Since the interview you know,[br]he said the dex got swept away.
That was a lie.[br]She always carried it on her.
Four years, Wick?
Now the mountain owns him.[br]He had to come back.
Now you're gonna kill him.
My wife died of edema.
It stripped the skin from her throat,[br]and filled her lungs with water.
She drowned in her own bodily fluids.[br]Yeah, I'm gonna kill him.
I can't let you do it.
Peter, do you know where you are?
Above 24,000, you're at the[br]vertical limit, you're already dying.
Look at you. You can hardly stand.
If you think you're gonna stop me,[br]go ahead.
Peter. Are you there?
Annie. Annie, is it you?
Annie. Annie, what is it?
Where are you?
Five hours away.
I want you to go back.
Don't risk it. There's no reason.
I not gonna be here. Neither Tom.
An hour. Two at the most.
I'm here, Annie.
I've been thinking.
I've been thinking a lot about dad.
We shouldn't have gotten him a grave.
We should have come up here[br]together with his ashes.
Remember how he talked, this is where he was happiest?
He was a climber.
And I, I think every real climber[br] wanna stay on the mountain.
What do you think?
I think we'll come back some day.
The two of us.
I would've liked that.
- I'm coming to get you, Annie.[br]- No, don't.
Promise me. I don't want you to die.[br]I can't let you do that.
- I don't care![br]- Don't put me through it, you understand?
Good night, Peter.
I love you.
Are you gonna kill me now?
Are you ready?
I can't get them to melt.[br]They're frozen.
- Boil the water![br]- With what?
Okay. Keep feeding it.
Keep it coming.
Stop! It's leaking!
We can try and push it through[br]before it rips.
One, two, three!
Hold it! Hold it!
How is she?
Talk about a will to live.
- That's not a song.[br]- That's definitely a song.
No way that's a song.
That's a good song.
A winning song, by the sound of it.
I think you're making it up.
That was a hell of a thing[br]you did up there.
Anybody else would've given up.
He'd be proud of you.
Angry, but really proud.
Now get some sleep.
