Gau Ming-Ho a climber depicted as a slow selfish climber that led to the problems highlighted in Jon Krakauer’s “Into Thin Air”, has launched a documentary refuting the claims and saying the problems lie with the corruption of the guide services that charge $65,000 for an Everest climb
The documentary is called “Prayer Flags.”
It also takes a swipe at others, including Russian guide and wellknown mountaineer Anatoli Boukreev, prompting the latter to write another book, Ã¢â‚¬Å“The ClimbÃ¢â‚¬Â to give his side of the story.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I decided to make a documentary to set the record straight.Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“Prayer FlagsÃ¢â‚¬Â, the 30-minute video, holds human greed responsible for the deaths, not the storm.
