In March 1985, Mal Duff led a new expedition to conquer Everest by the unclimbed north-east ridge. The last attempt by a Chris Bonington team had ended in failure and the tragic deaths of two great climbers, Joe Tasker and Pete Boardman. In this book, shortlisted for the Boardman-Tasker Awards, Greig chronicles not only the assault on the peak, but also the complex inter-relationships of 19 very different individuals living together, yet each of them very much alone.
