Editorial Reviews

The Mountain Within tells the story of a multi-ability team of people who decide to take on one of the world’s most feared and revered mountains, Kilimanjaro.

Strong friendships evolve quickly, the bonds deepening with every step. Seemingly insurmountable obstacles defeat some but leave others yet more determined to continue. Powerful emotions are unleashed as tensions run high, but laughter is never far behind the tears. The many stories that unfold provide a powerful insight into the climbers’ internal and external journeys as they struggle with the challenge of a lifetime.

With cinematography by EMMY award winner, Gordon Brown (3 Peaks 3 Weeks, The Nile First Ascent), directed by Kyle Portbury (Swan Song, Beyond The Search) and original score by BAFTA & EMMY nominated composer Michael Price (BBC's Sherlock, Wild Target, Wild Child). The Mountain Within is an inspirational story of courage and hope.

This amazing journey of the spirit shows us that it is often our hearts and minds rather than our bodies that limit all of us.

Excellent book detailing leadership dynamics as well as inspirational and motivational principles.
Herta's transparency is engaging. She gives many practical insights for both personal an professional challenges. The book details the many benefits that come from teamwork and networking. I highly recommend this book.

Not having read the book, THE MOUNTAIN WITHIN, by Herta Von Stiegel, my wife thought this video would be boring. By the end of the movie, she was CAPTIVATED. She said this is the best Documentary she has ever watched.

The Documentary is about Herta (an internationally acclaimed Business/Finance Executive) and Hans (her husband) Von Stiegel who lead a group of 28 (of which 7 are disabled) on an attempt to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro for charity. Typically, only about 35% of all climbers who attempt the ascent on Mt. Kilimanjaro are successful in making it to the top. Yet, 60% of this group of 28 multinational climbers and 3 of the 7 disabled made it all the way to the top in six days.

The story also provided me with an excellent leadership lesson on motivation, goal setting and team work, and the opportunity that was/is given each climber (disabled & non-disabled) to conquer the mountains of obstacles everyone has to deal with in their own lives (personal and professional).

I, having read the book, knew it was a great story. However, I was not prepared for the exceptional cinematography (Gordon Brown - THE DEADLIEST CATCH), the way in which every human emotion from high to low was captured (Director - Kyle Portbury, BEYOND THE SEARCH), and the way in which the Producers (Herta and Hans Von Stiegel) have you identifying with and cheering for each of the seven challenged climbers, as well as some of the support staff like Pauline who had to turn back after day three.

Incredibly, three of the seven disabled are able to endure and make it all the way to the top of the mountain.

This film not only takes you up Kilimanjaro but it brilliantly tells a story about the power of the human spirit. It allows the viewer to experience the incredible determination shown by those affected by a disability. Not everyone who attempts climbing Kili will make it given the random way which altitude sickness strikes down the fittest of climbers. But this film is a testament to why we should focus on ability rather than disability in life - I was very moved.

Great video. I was searching for documentaries on Kilimanjaro and came across this one. Everyone had so much determination. How inspirational it was.
