The Climb

Tragic Ambitions on Everest

By Anatoli Boukreev & G. Weston DeWalt
Narrated by Lloyd James / 9 hours 35 minutes

This is the gripping true account of the worst disaster in the history of Mt. Everest.

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 side of the mountain. In the dark, battered by snow and driven by hurricane-force winds, some of the climbers became hopelessly lost and resigned themselves to death. But head climbing guide Anatoli Boukreev refused to give up hope. Climbing blind in the maw of a life-threatening storm, Boukreev brought climbers back from the edge of certain death
