The Desert River: Every spring in Haines, Alaska, a river bulges and rages towards the sea, fed by the thawing of a massive mountain snowpack.

The Peak: Bernard is an average mountain climber. His crew is an average crew. And their climbs are, well….average. But Bernard wants something more: that last unclimbed peak.
