Description

The Climb is a true,gripping,and thought-provoking account of the worst disaster in the history of Mt. Everest: On May 10,1996,two commercial expeditions headed by experienced leaders attempted to climb the highest mountain in the world,but things went terribly wrong. Crowded conditions on the mountain,miscommunications,unexplainable delays,poor leadership,bad decisions,and a blinding storm conspired to kill. Twenty-three men and women,disoriented and out of oxygen,struggled to find their way down the southern side of the mountain. In the dark,battered by snow driven by hurricane-force winds,some of the climbers became hopelessly lost and resigned themselves to death. Anatoli Boukreev,the head climbing guide for the West Seattle-based Mountain Madness expedition,refused to give up hope. Solo,climbing blind in the maw of a storm that continually threatened his life,Boukreev brought climbers back from the edge of certain death.
