Experienced mountaineer, Lincoln Hall, is invited to join an expedition as high altitude cameraman. It is his second attempt on the mountain, having turned back just short of the summit 22 years earlier. In 2006, the deadliest season on Mount Everest in a decade, Lincoln Hall fulfilled his lifelong ambition of climbing the famous mountain, but things started to go wrong on the way back down. He was to become the only person to be declared dead so high on Everest who then lived to tell the tale.
At dawn, an international team making their way to the summit were amazed to find Lincoln sitting cross-legged on the edge of a 10,000 foot drop. His first words to the approaching climbers were: “I imagine you’re surprised to see me here”. With never before seen footage, exclusive access, interviews and high quality dramatic reconstructions, Miracle on Everest is one of the great survival stories.
