It seemed like any other season on Everest. Ten expeditions from around the world were preparing for their summit push, gathered to-gether to try for mountaineering's ultimate prize. Twenty-four hours later, eight of those climbers were dead, victims of the most devastating storm ever to hit Everest. On the North face of the mountain, a British expedition found itself in the thick of the drama. Against all odds, film-maker Matt Dickinson and professional climber Alan Hinkes managed to battle through hurricane-force winds to reach the summit. In Death Zone, Matt Dickinson describes the extraordinary event that put the disaster on the front cover of Time and Newsweek. The desperate attempts of teams on the southern side of the mountain. . . fatal errors that led to the deaths of three Indian climbers on the North Ridge. . . and the moving story of Rob Hall, the New Zealand guide who stayed with his stricken client, and paid with his life. Based on interviews with the surviving climbers and the first-hand experience of having lived through the killer storm, this book tackles issues at the very heart of mountaineering. Death Zone is an extra-ordinary story of human triumph, folly and disaster.
