Summary
May 1996 was a catastrophic year on the highest mountain in the world. Author Jon Krakauer lived to tell the tale of reaching the summit of Mt. Everest, but six of his fellow climbers lost their lives on that fateful day. Here, Krakauer examines the myriad causes that led to such fatal consequences. He furthermore raises a debate surrounding the bastion of inexperienced climbers that are increasingly attempting to summit this dangerous mountain
