Beckoning Silence takes a journey with Joe Simpson as he faces a fateful decision following the tragic loss of a close friend. 

Never more alive than when most at risk, he has come to see a last climb on the hooded, mile-high North Face of the Eiger as the cathartic finale.

The narrative follows Simpson’s extreme experiences; from an avalanche in Bolivia, ice-climbing in the Alps and Colorado and paragliding in Spain before his final confrontation with the Eiger, Simpson reveals the inner truth of climbing, exploring both the power of the mind and the frailties of the body.
