The Man Who Skied Down Everest is a documentary about Yuichiro Miura, a Japanese alpinist who skied down Mt. Everest in 1970.  I re-watched this last night, as my mountaineering obsession continues. Mr. Miura has even successfully climbed Mt. Everest in 2013 at the age of 80!

I loved to see how unspoiled, clean and barren Mt. Everest was in 1970.

There weren’t ladders over the Khumbu Ice Fall, they had used logs!
