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
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!!
