Another nice piece of Australian climbing history has come to light, just found the video for "Everest: The Australian Challenge: The First Australian Mt Everest Expedition's ascent of the great Couloir Route Autumn 1984" as shown on Channel 9; waaaaay back when... Ripped off the original VHS, and narrated by Jack Thompson, no less!! When he intones "the sheer joy of climbing nirvana...", you certainly feel the weight of it... : ) Hope others enjoy this watch as much as I did!
