‘Father Of Ice Mountain’

“The courage to climb and ski a huge mountain is just like anything worth achieving in life: you have to work extremely hard, but the satisfaction and reward of meeting your goal is worth the struggle.”

Those words came from an Uyghur man who Bryan Long, Aron Ralston, and Michael Ash encountered on their way to Muztagh Ata, a 24,636-foot mountain on the Tibetan Plateau. Watch as the crew travels to and climbs the peak in the gorgeous video, “Father Of Ice Mountain.”
