SUMMARY

On a smaller scale, To the Summit is a show that explores the idea of climbing Mt. Everest, going from the thrill of seeing the mountain, to the risks and dangers involved in climbing the slopes, and the victory of reaching the summit. On a larger scale, this show can also be about setting a goal, planning out how to achieve that goal, then the journey that must be made to achieve that goal, and hopefully see it fulfilled!
