Riverwalk Center: Breckenridge. Mountaineer Hilaree O’Neill shares the gripping story of leading a five-person team to the summit of Burma’s Hkakabo Razi to determine if it is indeed Southeast Asia’s highest point. What unfolded was a harrowing expedition that pushed the group to the brink mentally and physically and carved them down to nothing. The team encountered one pitfall after another: interminable overland train rides, sketchy motorcycle trips in the rain, hellish jungle slogs, dwindling food supplies, logistical failures, howling winds, false summits, hypothermia, perilous gendarmes and —perhaps the most threatening of all — personality clashes that threatened to unravel the expedition.
O’Neill recounts the tough decisions she had to make to keep the team together, accompanied by photographer Cory Richard’s dramatic stills and clips from Renan Ozturk’s searing documentaryDown to Nothing.
