Detailed Product Description
UK, 2011, 1st edition. 244 pp, 50+ color photos. Softcover. New 

There is one distinct advantage to launching your Everest bid from the shores of the Dead Sea in Jordan at 420m below sea level. That figure can be added onto Everest's height to deliver a total ascent of 9,269m, making it, the world's longest climb.

"I was lucky enough to be part of the Everestmax team when we were the first in the world to achieve this by completing the 8000km bike ride from the Dead Sea and then summiting Mt Everest. It took 6 months to complete and getting to the start line was no easy task."

Many adventurers are driven to go to extremes. They visit remote places and seem to revel in the challenge and suffering that goes along with those expeditions. Back in 2006, a team of climbers from the U.K. took that philosophy to new limits, when they set out on an expedition that began at the Dead Sea and ended on the summit of Everest.

The team began their adventure at 1385 feet below sea level on the shores of the Dead Sea in Jordan, where they climbed aboard their bikes and proceeded to ride all the way Everest Base Camp on the Tibetan side of the mountain. The journey took more than six months to complete, and they faced about every type of weather imaginable along the way.

Upon reaching Everest, their challenges were just beginning of course. They still had to face the tallest mountain on the planet, and all of the difficulties that that entails. In the end, they reached the summit, located at 29,029 feet, having chalked up 30,414 feet of elevation gain along the way.
