The Everest Files story continues in North Face ... Ryan Hart is an 18-year-old adventurer on a mission.

To get himself to Mount Everest and check out the truth about the world's highest peak.

Friends have told him dark stories about the mountain, outrageous things that he wants to see for himself. Just a few hours after Ryan arrives at Everest Base Camp a lethal earthquake strikes.

Avalanches pound the glacier, burying Ryan's climbing buddy and killing many others.

A desperate rescue saves Ryan's friend, but only after a local Tibetan girl Tashi helps with the search. Stress levels are running high among the climbing teams.

The mountain is shut for the season because it is judged too dangerous. Then a flashlight reveals a clue. Someone is alive, high on Everest's treacherous north face!Tashi is convinced it is her 15-year-old brother. Ryan is prepared to risk everything to help. Storm clouds gather as they set out on their illegal climb, a do-or-die mission which the local militia will do anything to stop.
