About this title

Synopsis:

Dominic Faulkner's compelling account of his incredible journey from the Dead Sea to the summit of Everest.

Dominic Faulkner's team, EverestMax, was the first-ever to make the extraordinary journey from the Dead Sea to the peak of Everest. Following an old Victorian route, Dominic cycled through Jordan, Syria, Turkey, Iran, Pakistan and India on his way to Tibet and the foot of the world's highest mountain.

From trying to find a wireless connection in Damascus and setting fire to the team's support vehicle in order to thaw the engine in Iran, to deciding whether or not to share the little oxygen they had and risk their own lives in order to try to save another climber, and beating their Austrian nemesis Gerry Winkler to the top, The Longest Climb is a high-octane combination of the huge personal risk, fascinating cultural insights, and moments of farce that make up a major expedition.

About the Author:

DOMINIC FAULKNER spent some years with the Army and his first Everest climbing experience was as a member of the Millennium SAS team — but on that expedition he was injured and failed to summit.
