BOSTON (CBS) – David Roberts is an acclaimed mountain climber and author of 24 books and numerous articles on mountaineering, adventure and the history of the American Southwest. He will join Tim tonight on NightSide just as the new movie, “Everest,” about the tragic 1996 expedition that killed eight opens around the country. He will talk about what compels mountain climbers to take the risks that they do. Is it the thrill in the physical accomplishment? Why do they continue to do what they do in the face of such great danger? Have you ever thought of trying if yourself?
