In the summer of 1968 three men – climber and surfer Yvon Chouinard, climber and skier Doug Tompkins, and champion skier Dick Dorworth – set off from California in a old van to surf, ski and climb their way down to the southern end of Argentina where they met up with a young British climber, Chris Jones. Their goal was to climb a mountain that had been climbed only twice before: Cerro Fitz Roy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great movie ...and this soundtrack is the perfect base layer. It was never published on it's own, wasn't it?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good old Days Great example of old school adventure. Get a group of friends together pile the van full of gear and hit the road. Reminds me of trips from NY to Devils Tower and the Canadian Rockies in the old days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The journey begins The deeds that are shown in the movie led to the thoughts of our planet which led to core beliefs which led to the founding of a company which led to others thinking about our planet's preservation. A beautiful journey indeed

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Straight Talk about Mountain of Storms This film is a total disappointment. The only section of interest is the footage of Saint Yvon nailing pins for protection. Aside from that, the film is a wash, the home movie of a road trip with its failed attempt at narrating a story line. If you’re into epic climbing films, check out Touching the Void or Benno Furmann’s North Face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Talk about vintage footage ... My 8-year old daughter wondered what was the deal with all the wierd music? Mountain of Storms plays some interesting tunes from the era which takes you back nearly 40 years in time. The film footage itself was amazing ... watching a young Yvon Chouinard and Doug Tompkins scale Mount Fitz Roy made me want to go out and build a snow cave for shelter. The narrator does the film justice with his classic reads. Nice piece of mountaineering history!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from INSPIRED What a pleasant taste of late sixties film-making and raw, inspirational exploration.
