Summary The author, who became the 131st person to reach the peak of Mount Everest in 1982, recounts his experience, and explains how his achievement came with a heavy price as he and his expedition faced hidden crevasses, blinding snowstorms, horrible altitude sickness, and more. Skreslet shares details of the climb, which is illustrated with full-color photos.
