Adventure Film Watch Party: The Porter- The Untold Story at Everest

Running and adventure inspiration during lockdown!


During the current lockdown, Team #GoodgymRedThunder will be hosting a weekly Adventure Film Watch Party- an opportunity to watch these great free-to-air documentaries together! During these uncertain times, sometimes we need a bit of inspiration to get us out the door and finding our own adventures!

The Porter- The Untold Story at Everest

A young privileged American attempts to make history at Everest by becoming a Himalaya Porter. But in his journey to succeed, experiences a harrowing reality instead. This is an inside look at the darker side of Everest. At the strength, pride and pain of those whose support it. And at just how hard it is for a naive foreigner to attempt the same.

I have successfully downloaded the extension. Do we need a link to a specific room? Or do we simply click Start Watching and put in the YouTube link and it will work out that we could be in a room together?
