I tried to climb it from the beach last May. 24 days on the mountain (turned around at 12k due to avy conditions, waited a week @ 10,500 in poor weather, humbling experience).

Here's a link to a write-up on our trip (there's some pics too):

That was Taylor Woodward's write up (not mine). Anybody with an itch for that peak should feel free to contact me for beta though, I'd be happy to help out.

I saw it at the Sheffield Adventure Film Festival, and I have mixed feelings. While the photography is absolutely stunning and the camerawork spotless, I just didn't like the story, and most of the skiers, especially the two main characters, appeared as complete dicks, so much so that in the end I couldn't bring myself to care whether they would succeed or not.
But still, I'm glad I saw the movie, just because of the visuals.
