    Would you listen to The Climb again? Why?

    Climb is astonishing book as i listen to it im backing somethimes to get name or same tinny detail correct and memorized it.
    Climb power is in very detailed story of preparing step by step calculating equipment judging power of individual climbers . Called here simply clients but dont fall for that each of those clients is by over city standard power house of adventures spirt and astonishing achievement. If you want answer why this is sometimes not enough you must have this book. Stories like Into Thin Air by Joe Krakauer High Exposure by Dave Broachers or Ed Viestrus have more personal emotions and by any standards are great but Climb is completion of the events with surgical precision .
    Must to read must to have if you dont like those kind of books dont bother it will not convince you that you should because it is technical and brutal honest


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Climb?

    2 pm turn around time observed from outside telescope by other expeditions Viestrus Todd Breaschears new that befote players on the scene that something is really wrong .
    No comunictation or weak at points make this event hard for observers theirs long time friends are heading for disaster and they cant reach them quick enough to be of any help. It is heart breaking!!


    Which character – as performed by Lloyd James – was your favorite?

    Well This was attempt by Anatolii Bukrieiew to redeem himself.
    And automatically he is main lead here.
    i dont think he needed this defense he was the bravest the best preforming climber on Everest that day and proof to be hero going out time after time alone to save his friends


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes it was it was summary of all books i had about this tragedy


    Any additional comments?

    Must read if you like mountains dont bother if you dont brilliant account and it is power in details and logistic behind Himalaya expeditions i would never knew
    Was this careful planing enough?
    Let Everest be the Judge!
