Detailed Product Description
UK, 2012, 1st edition. 194 pp, color and b/w photos. Foreword by Simone Moro. K2 is one of the world's most difficult and unpredictable mountains. At 28,251 feet, the world's second-tallest mountain, most climbers regard it as the ultimate achievement in mountaineering. On 1 August 2008 Ger McDonnell became the first Irish person to reach the summit of K2 as part of the K2 team.
 
But Ger and the other climbers didn't know that below them an avalanche had swept away their ropes. Joy soon turned to dismay for the McDonnell family waiting by computers and phones as Ger's status 'Gerard Mc Donnell status unknown' remained unchanged for what seemed an eternity. The descent witnessed one of the worst tragedies in recent climbing history. Eleven climbers died, including Ger McDonnell.
 
What exactly happened on that first day of August 2008? Could the disaster have been avoided? Echoing Ger's final message before he set off for the summit, The Time Has Come pieces together the details of what happened that fateful day. Using eyewitness accounts, countless hours of interviewing surviving climbers, family, friends and others involved, photographic research and Ger's writings, a compelling and revealing story of bravery and heroism in the face of terrible odds emerges. This epic account of 37-year-old Irishman Ger McDonnell reveals a man who was passionate about life and lived it to its entirety, a life that was short but filled with adventure. New paperback.
 
Damien O'Brien is married to Ger McDonnell's sister, Denise. A keen sports fan, especially of GAA, Damien spent 3 years as chairman of his local GAA club. He was fascinated listening to Ger tell his stories and was delighted to write this book in his honour.  New paperback.
