520    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.
