"The South West Face of Everest has never been conquered. The greatest unclaimed challenge in the world remains to test the limits of men's courage, skill and audacity.
In the autumn of 1972, cutting manpower and equipment to a minimum, Chris Bonington led an all British team, including Hamish McInnes and Douglas Halston, in an attempt to climb the south west face. After overcoming seemingly impossible conditions and circumstances, they established five camps and were almost within reach of the summit when they were forced to abandon the attempt because of the intense cold and jet stream winds.
Day by day tape recorded and written diaries give a true picture of the ebb and flow of emotions and the complex interplay of problems. This is the authentic and frank records of what Lord Hunt in his forward calls........one of the great stories of our time."

Paperback book second hand condition- has name inside front cover - 368 pages printed in 1976.
