Everest - From Sea to Summit
The first complete ascent of Everest.
No-one had ever really climbed Mt Everest. Only by starting at sea level could a mountaineer claim to have climbed all 8874 metres of the world’s highest peak.
This was the logic behind Australian Tim Macartney-Snape’s Sea to Summit expedition.
On 5 February 1990, Tim set out from the Bay of Bengal with his wife, Dr Ann Ward, and a back-up team and headed for the roof of the world. He would have to walk 1000km through north-east India, Nepal and the Himalayan foothills to Base Camp, and then he would have to climb to Everest’s summit.
This is Tim’s personal account of that remarkable journey. It is a many-faceted story – about travel, adventure and mountaineering. It is also about humanity and how it can make peace with the natural world. It is about the villagers of the Gangetic plains, the laughing children of the Himalaya and about how Ann coped with the torment of knowing the dangers her husband faced on the mountain.
And it is a dramatic and inspiring account of personal achievement in meeting one of the greatest challenges known to mankind: reaching the summit of Everest unassisted and without supplementary oxygen.
