In 2006, eleven people died attempting to reach the summit of Everest, the most fatalities since 1996. But 2006 saw no blizzard, only the constant dangers posed by unstable ice, merciless cold, thin air - and human nature. The author tells the shocking true stories of British solo climber David Sharp, who was passed by 40 mountaineers as he lay dying on the slopes of the mountian, and Lincoln Hall, who was left for dead yet miraculously survived. How far will people go in their single-minded pursuit of the ultimate mountaineering prize?
