Detailed Product Description
1992. 135 pp, 20 photos. The 1991 Canadian Everest North Side attempt was one of the first from the Mallory route, and was done to raise funds for the Rett Syndrome charity, and reached 26,000'. New Paperback.
 
Mount Everest's rarely attempted North Col in 1991 by the Canadian climbing team that was formed by Ernie Sniedzins to bring attention to his daughter's debilitating struggle with the mysterious medical condition known as Rett Syndrome. A video was produced offering vivid footage of the team's journey through Nepal, from Kathmandu to Kodari, and then through Chinese customs in Zhangmu on to Shegar, Rongbuk Monestary, and Everest Base Camp in Tibet. The expeditions efforts to get to Everest base camp in the earlier years were exposed to high water, mud, landslides, moraine, and up into Mount Everest's heights.
 
Works such as Everest: Mountain Without Mercy  and Jon Krakauer's Into Thin Air: A Personal Account of the Mt. Everest Disaster have increased awareness of the physical and psychological challenges that Everest presents to those who would reach the summit and trace the journeys of climbs that resulted in numerous casualties. Everest: Climb for Hope is the documentary of a Canadian team's ascent of the same merciless Everest, but without a single death'
