The Climb

Two hotshot climbers forge an uneasy friendship to reach a mutual goal. Their teamwork escalates into a test of wills, character, and sacrifice, pushing them beyond their limits.

Michael (played by Ned Vaughn) and Derrick (played by Jason George) are two mountain climbers who march to the beat of their own drum. Michael is analytical and cautious. Derrick, on the other hand, is a thrill-seeking hotshot who likes to live by the seat of his pants. What do they have in common? They’re both really good mountain climbers – I mean really good. And they both have a dream to climb the Chicanagua peak in the Chilean Andes Mountains.

Trouble is, they can’t climb the treacherous mountain without the help of another experienced mountain climber, plus they have no money for a trip to South America. Things don’t look too promising for the mountain-climbing dreamers…until fate lends a hand.

While climbing the same mountain one day, the two men discover an injured climber who desperately needs their help. Teaming up, they work to save the injured climber, who happens to be the son of one of the nation’s most powerful business tycoons. Eager to reward the men, the father sponsors their trip to climb the famous South American mountain, which is also great publicity for his business.

Michael and Derrick are eager to accept the fully funded ascent up the world’s deadliest mountain. Their dreams after all have come true. But they still have a huge obstacle remaining in addition to the mountain: They must forge an uneasy friendship to reach the ultimate summit.

Michael’s careful and Christ-like approach to life rubs Derrick the wrong way, and Michael is unwilling to risk his life on the whims of a reckless climber like Derrick on one of the most dangerous mountains on earth. Will the two men join together to reach their ultimate dream, or will the peak of Chicanagua remain unconquered?
