White Llmbo by Lincoln Hall
Book DescriptionThe best book about mountaineering ever It should be read by everyone who still understands the spirit of human endeavour, courage and sacrifice and who holds adventure in their heart.' Sunday Telegraph The highest point on earth - the summit of Everest - is every climber's dream. In 1984, it was the goal of a small team of Australians. They planned a quick, lightweight ascent of an unclimbed route without oxygen. But their battle with storms, avalanches, extreme cold and thin air meant they soon began to run out of time. Walt Unsworth, Everest historian, wrote, 'Their actual achievement was astonishing; one of the greatest climbs ever done on the mountain.' First published more than two decades ago, White Limbo continues to be a true adventure classic and now contains a foreword by by Bradley Trevor Greive (best-selling author of The Blue Day Book).
