Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Joe Simpson, author of "This Game Of Ghosts" and "Touching The Void", debates whether the noble instincts and principles which once characterised the world of mountaineering have been irrevocably displaced, using the example of an Indian climber left to die on Everest as his colleagues continued with their summit bid. "Above all, Simpson is a born writer" "The Times".

Synopsis:

In 1992, a climber was left to die by other climbers on Mount Everest, which horrified Joe Simpson who was himself left for dead in Peru in 1985. In this book Simpson explores anecdotally and in heated debates with his climbing companions on Pumori, the moral climate of mountaineering in the 1990s.
