http://www.alifeascending.com I gathered up some clips from the cutting room floor and am going to start posting them here. This one is about the burdens of guiding. In making the film I interviewed these two gentlemen, Barry Blanchard -- who is a very well-known mountaineer and guide himself and he worked for Ruedi at one point -- and also Geoff Powter, who is an author, mountaineer and psychologist. Geoff wrote this fascinating book "Strange and Dangerous Dreams" about the fine line between adventure and madness. Here the two men are talking about some of what it is like to be a guide. Hope you enjoy it, Stephen
