About the Book: The Ascent of Everest
When Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay stepped onto the summitof Everest on 29th May 1953, they caught the imagination of theworld. But they did not conquer the mountain alone. Their successstood on the cooperative efforts of an entire team. Thisexpedition, led by John Hunt, was a model of what siege-styleclimbing should be and was recognized as such. It provided theblueprint for first ascents of many 8,000 meter peaks in thefollowing decade. From the expeditions meticulously plannedbeginning to its euphoric finish, The Ascent of Everest capturesall the emotion and spirited effort of the many who made thishistoric ascent a success. Today Everest has been climbed via allits formidable ridges and each of its great faces. It has beensummited without supplementary oxygen; it has been climbed solo;mountaineers have parapented off it. But the first ascent remains aclassic story of mountaineers pushing new thresholds in the sport,as they reach out to achieve the highest point in the world.
