Movie Info

Climb is an authentic-looking reenactment of a treacherous 1953 mountain-climbing expedition. Dr. Karl Herrligkoffer (James Hurdle), whose half-brother was killed in 1932 while attempting to scale the 26,000-foot Himalayan peak Nanga Parbar, leads a German/Austrian expedition up the same mountain two decades later. Herrligkoffer's volatile partner in this mission is headstrong mountaineer Herman Buhl (Bruce Greenwood). The film is as much a story about the conflict of temperaments between Herrligkoffer and Buhl as it is about the climb itself. Donald Shebib wrote and directed this Canadian-made "open air" adventure.
