About this title
Imagine climbing Mt. Everest with no Sherpa assistance. Purposefully abstaining also from bottled oxygen, computers, and radios, while establishing an historic new route. In 1988, American climber Ed Webster's 4-man team achieved this ultimate Everest ascent, years before the Into Thin Air tragedy. Now delve into Webster's 5-Star reader-rated Everest classic, Snow in the Kingdom, illustrated by 100 pages of stunning color photographs. ( Or sneak preview "Everest The Really Hard Way" at youtube.com/watch?v=zjAHkTHn4fA )
Almost 30 years ago, in a climbing style never seen again on Everest, four partners from America, Canada, and England pioneered a super-dangerous new route (the Neverest Buttress) up the avalanche-blasted precipices of the remote, nearly forgotten Kangshung East Face of Mt. Everest in Tibet. Perhaps most remarkably, not wanting to endanger the lives of any Sherpas, the climbers carried every ounce of gear and food themselves. Only one person summited. This small team's indomitable willpower to succeed, their bravery, mutual trust, and teamwork have become legendary. But days without food plus severe frostbite were the painful prices of victory and survival.
Physical Description: 6 x 9.25 inches, hard back, color laminated dust jacket, 580 pages printed on high-quality coated paper. Also included are 150 pages of color photographs, 282 black and white photos, maps of Asia and the Tibetan Plateau, 3 climbing route maps of Everest’s three faces, and 8 Everest climbing route photo-diagrams.
