From the Dust Jacket: "On May 17, 1982, Peter Boardman and Joe Tasker were last seen climbing toward the summit of Everett on an unclimbed ridge at over 800 metres. Two of Britain's leading mountaineers, each with an international reputation, they had climbed the West Wall of Changabang in 1976, Kangchenjunga, third highest summit in the world, and Kongur, in the west of China, among many of their exploits in a revolutionary decade of mountaineering. Boardman and Tasker were part of a six-member team who set out for Everest's last unclimbed ridge without oxygen. While we shall never know the last tragic moments of the expedition's final assault, this book records the team's progress to the once Forbidden City of Lhasa, across Tibet and to the unknown North East Ridge. Told by Chris Bonington, the leader of the expedition, and Charles Clarke the doctor; it tells of a close-knit team who lost cherished friends. Redolent in climbing history, honest and sometimes stark in its imagery, it lends a glimpse, through the eyes of the team's survivors, of the enigma of why anyone should leave home for the Goddess Mother of the World.". First American Edition (so stated). Hardcover. Very Good condition/Very Good dust jacket. 132pp. + 60 pages of color plates. Great Packaging, Fast Shipping.
