    The bravery of these men was astonishing. And the leadership was equally awesome, ultimately keeping them all alive.

    They were of their times and culture and driven by a mix of human motives and not so much by reason.

    The interesting thing about this documentary is that Stephen Venables, alpinist Conrad Anker and the yak himself, Reinhold Messner, recreated Shackleton, Creen, and Worsley's trek across South Georgia Island. More information:

    The Climbers' Traverse

    The three world-renowned climbers compare their traverse of South Georgia Island with that of Shackleton, Worsley and Crean:

    Conrad Anker:
    When I was approached to take part in this, it was like a dream come true. I'd always known about the traverse, how improbable it was, and that they'd succeeded in getting across South Georgia, which is very rocky and peak-covered with glaciers. And they did it with very little climbing experience.

    Shackleton, Worsley and Crean weren't mountaineers as we know it. They were seamen, and they were polar explorers, but they weren't climbers per se, by the same measure that Stephen and Reinhold and I are.

    They went at it very light: They had a rucksack, a little bit of food, a small rope and a carpenter's adze, and they made the traverse quite quickly. In doing so, they didn't set up any camps; they didn't carry heavy equipment. In the parlance of climbing, this is known as "Alpine style," where you go with a very light amount of gear, and you make a very quick dash. Our goal was to do it in as similar a style as they did it.

    Even in the most demanding climbs I've ever done, I never got close to what these guys were doing. They were at the edge of what was humanly possible. They were out for so long and so far away. There were a few moments in climbing that were certainly serious, that were very scary and full of adventure. What Shackleton and his crew endured is beyond what I think anyone nowadays would be able to do.

    Reinhold Messner:
    I first met Shackleton (naturally, only in my mind) when I went to Antarctica in 1986. I went there to climb Mt. Vinson: It was the last of my seven highest summits of all of the continents. I then understood what Antarctica really was, and, coming home, I studied all I could on Shackleton. He became my hero, and, being in love with this huge white continent, I then traversed Antarctica more or less exactly as Shackleton had intended.

    Generally speaking, in the mountains or in the ice, you can never exactly follow the routes of the pioneers, because the weather is always changing, the snow conditions are different [and] the climate has changed. You end up generally on the same route because [there are] certain ranges you have to cross, otherwise you cannot get there. We think that it may be more difficult today to cross this island, because there is less snow, and there are more crevasses, but generally we followed his route, and, following his descriptions, we know where Shackleton actually passed.

    I think the South Georgia traverse, as we did it, is a very small part of the Endurance experience. He and his men were exposed for 17 months in the most difficult part of the world. I'm still sure that Shackleton's Endurance expedition, with the sailing and the dramatic return home, was the greatest adventure ever. It's very interesting to see how Shackleton failed in his attempt to cross the Antarctic continent, but it's more interesting to see how he was able, with his perfect leadership, to bring home his 27 men.

    Stephen Venables:
    What is so amazing [is] that having survived that hideous boat journey and almost being shipwrecked off the coast of South Georgia, [they] then come ashore and realize they've got to dig deeper, to find more reserves, to cross those glaciers, through completely uncharted mountains. Shackleton seems to have this amazing genius for always making the big bold gesture. There was always action; there was always a decision—"Let's go. Let's do this, rather than sit around and wait for things to unfold."

    As we set off on the second day, I was thinking, "How are we going to get out of here?" We were hidden in a labyrinth of ice, and we didn't know how long it was going to take to get through to the other side. But we had Conrad leading the way in front, and he's a brilliant route finder, and, within an hour or two, we got out of the worst of the most contorted area of the glacier, and then things got easier.

    Now, because of global warming, the glaciers have become more broken, and the crevasses are melting and shrinking. Pitching our tent the second night in quite a wild blizzard, the tent being battered by the wind, all of us damp and cold, you really thought, "If we were out there without a tent, we probably wouldn't survive for very long." It really hones your appreciation for what they did in 1916.

    Reinhold, Conrad and I have all experienced very moving moments coming down from a great climb—that feeling of catharsis and relief and euphoria. Even on this trip, after three days, it was very emotional seeing Stromness whaling station and then thinking that those three men saw Stromness after this incredible journey that lasted for 17 months, and they realized they finally made it. It's almost beyond words to describe the euphoria they [must have] felt.

    Ni una palabra sobre el Piloto Pardo y sus hombres, la tripulación CHILENA que en un barco DE LA ARMADA DE CHILE rescató a los náufragos. Shackleton fue pasajero en la "Yelcho".

  • Incredible what those men had to endure …… Their suffering and fortitude is beyond imagining.

    I once heard Apollo 13 referred to as a "successful failure" because they survived. Shackleton's story embodies those words. A victory of unbreakable spirit against certain death.

    If Shackleton was Kirk, Worsley certainly was Spock.

    Sir Ernest Shackleton, Frank Worsley, Frank Wild, and Tom Crean were all heroes and as many times as I revisit their story of the Endurance, I am thrilled and elevated in spirit. I will return once again to South Georgia to pay my respects and honor Sir Ernest and Frank Wild. May their spirits live on in all of us who have read or heard their story of the Endurance.

    Shackleton was a hero, and an amazing leader. He needed Frank worsley to make the "failure" successful!
