    This documentary follows a Japanese husband-and-wife team of mountain climbers who, despite having lost fingers and toes to frostbite on a previous climb, overcome their disabilities to make the first ascent on a 1300-metre sheer wall in Greenland in the summer of 2007.

    Mountaineers and scientists battle the snowy precipices of Antarctica's highest peak - the Vinson Massif. The film's story is told through the voice of Jon Krakauer, mountaineer and best-selling author of "Into Thin Air". His high-risk expedition to scale the icy peak is interwoven with the epic story of Scott and Amundsen's race to reach the South Pole in 1912. Krakauer examines why one team failed and the other succeeded, even as he battles with the challenge of conquering the unpredictable slopes of the southern continent's mightiest summit.

    In Arctic Canada, at 70 degrees north latitude, a large fjord is lined with precipitous cliffs formed by some 10,000 years of glacial activity. In June, 2003, a Japanese team of climbers embarked on a momentous journey to scale one of these cliffs -- a towering citadel 1200 metres above sea level. Filmed against a panoramic Arctic backdrop, this documentary recounts their bold and painstaking ascent, which was hampered by freezing temperatures, snowstorms and treacherously loose rocks.
