THE GRAND RESCUE is a story of a rescue that became legend. In 1967, on the North Face of the Grand Teton, seven rescuers risked their lives to save a severely injured climber and his companion. The rescue took three harrowing days and pushed the team to new abilities. Remarkably, the injured climber was critical of those who risked their lives to save his. THE GRAND RESCUE exposes the tenuous relationship between man and the mountain, and recounts an unprecedented rescue in American mountaineering.  THE GRAND RESCUE was directed and produced by Salt Lake County Council Member Hon. Jenny Wilson.
