Unabridged audiobook on 9 cassettes! May 10, 1996. 16-yr-old Mark Pfetzer huddles in his tent at 26,000 feet, waiting for his turn to attempt Everest's summit. As a fierce storm descends on the camp, a frightening realization dawns on Mark and his colleagues: Many of the climbers have not yet returned. By morning the storm has claimed eight lives -- and Mark's long-dreamed-of summit day has become one of the bleakest days in mountaineering history. This is Mark's fascinating first-person account of his Everest experience, in which he takes us past the ever-shifting Khumbu Icefall, over three-hundred-foot crevasses, and up to the high-altitude "Death Zone".
