Stephen Venables and three companions set out to climb Everest's most challenging and remote wall, the massive Kangshung Face in 1988. Some experts gave them little chance of success -- or even survival. The team was the smallest group ever to attempt such a difficult climb on the world's highest mountain. Following many weeks of struggle and a 16-hour push from high camp, Venables reached the summit alone. After a blizzard delayed his descent, he was forced to spend a night in the open at 28,000 feet -- and the team's troubles were just beginning. Book jacket.
