The great mountain that has fascinated so many climbers is at the heart of this book. A place where you're as high as a cruising jet plane and unable to breathe properly, a block of ice as huge as a building could crush you at any moment, a sudden avalanche could strike without warning and you have a one in six chance of dying...EVEREST ADVENTURE describes the realities of attempting the world's ultimate mountaineering challenge. From the mystery of Mallory's disappearance to the stories of today's high-tech climbing heroes, the book details each agonising step up to the highest place on earth.
