The Family That Conquered Everest

Climbing Mount Everest is considered one of mankind’s greatest feats of endurance. The grueling expedition to the top of the world’s highest peak is a journey filled with unparalleled physical and mental challenges and some of the toughest, most extreme conditions imaginable. In 2008, Alan Mallory and his family took on the challenge and became the first family of four to set foot on the summit. It was a two-month journey filled with emotion, loyalty, boldness and terror and the experiences the team encountered during the expedition were as incredible as they were terrifying. From staggering across ladders spanning bottomless crevasses and fighting the many altitude-related illnesses to climbing through a blizzard in the dead of night and two members of the team almost losing their lives forever, every segment of the climb was an exhilarating venture.
