Summary The Climb is the gripping true story of one of the worst mountaineering tragedies in history. In May 1996, two groups attempted to ascend Mount Everest. As the climbers neared the summit, they were overtaken by intense snow and wind and found their crucial oxygen supplies depleted. Five of them died, including the expedition's two leaders. Boukreev led his group back to safety, then went back out in the blizzard to help others stranded on the mountain. Weaving together first hand accounts by the head tour guide of the Mountain Madness expedition and an investigative narrative based on interviews with other expedition members and mountain climbing specialists, the authors explore the conditions that led to the May, 1996 disaster on Everest. The authors counter many of the claims that were made in Jon Krakauer's "Into Thin Air", written on the same subject.
