THE ULTIMATE CHALLENGE
Hunter Books
"T30890" Stein and Day, N.Y. 1973, first edition, 352 pages, profusely illustrated in color and B & W, maps. The hardest way up the highest mountain in the world. In the autumn of 1972 a group of expert mountain climbers led by Chris Bonington attempted to scale the most difficult and as yet unclimbed south west face of Mount Everest. The group had two aims: first, to challenge the highest mountain in the world via the hardest route; second to do so not by a vast expedition with hundreds of Sherpas but with the smallest team possible. After months of labor, including the death pf one of the members of the team, they came within 600 feet of the summit but were unable to make the final sprint because of certain knowledge that they would die in the attempt. SIGNED BY BONINGTON on the title page. Dust jacket and book are Very Fine.  ID#: 4237
