I don't know how many of you people climb, so this is probably a long shot, but I was wondering if anyone saw the movie Touching the Void? It is a recent movie about two guys climbing an unclimbed mountain in Peru. Things go bad on the way down - I won't spoil it.
An excellent movie if you want to see what someone will go through with the proper determination to live. You don't have to be a climber to understand.
True story btw.
