In the summer of 1968, Yvon Chouinard, Doug Tompkins, and Dick Dorworth decided to climb the rarely attempted Cerro Fitz Roy, but first they had to drive from California to southern Argentina in a sketchy van. The DVD Mountain of Storms documents the road trip that changed their lives.
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.
