New documentary film spotlights man who climbed Everest twice

Long before the use of sophisticated equipment and precise computerized instruments, one man scaled Mt. Everest twice. Local filmmaker Bev Chapman tells the story of Nawang Gombu who scaled the epic mountain in both 1963 and 1965. The documentary, "Heart of a Tiger", spotlights Gombu who was a pioneer in the "golden age" of mountaineering.
