Unfortunately, I had the same problem here I had with Everest some days ago. Even a documentary was unable to help me understand why one with a wife and kids would knowingly risk their life, and accept the risk of their friends dying, for an admittedly impossible climb such as the Meru Wall in the Himalayas. Is the motive anything other than, "Please look at me"? Again, the cinematography here is breath-talking, but again, so is the idiocy.
