    Joe Simpson, with just his partner, Simon Yates, tackled the unclimbed West Face of the remote 21,000-foot Siula Grande in the Peruvian Andes in June of 1995. But before they reached the summit, disaster struck. A few days later, Simon staggered into Base Camp, exhausted and frostbitten, to tell their non-climbing companion that Joe was dead. For three days he wrestled with guilt as they prepared to return home. Then a cry in the night took them out with torches, where they found Joe, badly injured.

    Joe Simpson et Simon Yates, deux jeunes alpinistes britanniques, tentent la première et ambitieuse ascension de la face ouest du Siula Grande dans les Andes du Pérou. Ils atteignent le sommet, mais c'est à la descente que se produit le drame. Dans la tempête, Joe tombe à travers une corniche de neige et se blesse gravement à la jambe. À 6000 mètres, sur cette montagne isolée du monde, il n'a aucune chance de s'en sortir. Il le sent.
