Nine Lives: Expeditions to Everest

Available

Description

Robert Mads Anderson is an elite mountaineer with a solitary goal: to conquer Everest . After nearly getting killed on his first expedition, he led a team up a new route on the Kangshung Face without oxygen or Sherpa support, climbed solo on the remote North Face, and finally guided a team to the top of the world.

Incorporating a who's who of internationally recognised climbers, including Stephen Venables , Reinhold Messner and Chris Bonington , Nine Live s traces the story of Everest, from the big, nationally supported expeditions of the 1980s; through the small teams forging new routes and climbing solo; to the commercially guided expeditions of today.

Set against the majestic backdrop of the world's tallest peak, Anderson's nine Everest expeditions over eighteen years define what truly drives a human being to the greatest of heights. With a foreword by Peter Hillary and 32 pages of colour photography, in Nine Lives Robert Mads Anderson offers his personal account of the world's highest mountain.
