David Breashears is a mountaineer and filmmaker. In 1985, he became the first American to reach the summit of Mount Everest twice. He is perhaps most famous for guiding Richard Bass to the summit of Everest, thus completing Bass's ascent of the seven highest summits on each continent. He has worked on feature films including Seven Years in Tibet and Cliffhanger, as well as on the award-winning documentary Red Flag over Tibet. In 1983 he transmitted the first live pictures from the summit of Mount Everest and in 1985 he became the first American to reach its summit more than once. He is the recipient of four Emmy awards for achievement in cinematography. Breashears's 2008 documentary film Storm Over Everest was shown on the PBS program Frontline on May 13, 2008. It features photography on the mountain and interviews with survivors of the three climbing teams that were caught in the 1996 storm. The music for the documentary was composed by Jocelyn Pook. During the filming of the documentary in 2006, Breashears summitted Everest once again, his fifth summit of Everest. He continues to actively pursue Himalayan climbing, lecturing around the world and working on new film projects. David continues to be a sought after inspirational and motivational speaker.
