60 years on from the first successful ascent to the summit of Mount Everest, over 3,000 people have scaled the highest mountain on Earth. Climbing routes are well established, and each year sees hundreds of climbers make the boldest decision of their climbing careers, taking on the greatest challenge available. With Everest's popularity among climbers, it would seem that everything that can be done on the mountain, has been done. But that is not the case. Meet two British climbers who dream of entering the history books as pioneers of climbing. David Tait is a millionaire businessman who has already stood on the summit of Everest, yet entertains ambitions to become the first to make a 'double traverse' - ascending from the north and descending to the south, then repeating the trip in reverse. Rod Baber, meanwhile, already has his place in the record books, having scaled all the tallest peaks in Europe. But he has his eyes fixed on the biggest challenge of all: a once-in-a-lifetime attempt to climb what the Tibetans call 'Chomolungma', the holy mother. This is their astonishing story.
