In January 1999 Scottish climber Jamie Andrew was caught in an unforeseen storm after scaling the North Face of Les Droites in Chamonix with his best friend and climbing partner Jamie Fisher.
Fisher tragically died on the mountain after five days trapped on the summit. Andrew was lucky enough to survive, but required amputations to both of his legs and arms in the days that followed.
18 years on and Jamie is standing on prosthetic legs at the front of a sold-out crowd at the Edinburgh Mountain Film Festival telling his story, and explaining how he became the first ever quadruple-amputee to successfully reach the summit of the Matterhorn in 2016.
It’s a journey as harrowing as it is inspirational, and one that started in those fatal conditions on the summit of Les Droites in the Mont Blanc Massif.
