Detailed Product Description
American Alpine Club, 2004. The historical archives of Elizabeth Hawley, for over 40 years the meticulous chronicler of mountaineering expeditions in Nepal, are now available on this searchable CD. The database will help climbers make informed decisions for expedition planning, and it provides a glimpse into the successes and failures of past expeditions. Fine to New.
 
Every year an free online update is provided by the authors.
 
Data searchable by peak, climber, expedition, nationality, conditions, seasons, causes of death and other details.
 
This is a Microsoft Visual Foxpro application, compatible for both PC (Windows 9x, ME, NT, 2000, XP) and Mac. Includes an 80 page User Guide.

  • Searchable database informs decisions for expedition planning
  • Records provide a glimpse into the successes and failures of expeditions
  • Searchable by peak, climber, expedition, nationality, conditions, seasons, causes of death and many other details

 
Expeditions are influenced by an abundance of reference materials that detail the histories of past successes, but lack quantifiable data to vital questions. What route has the highest success rate? What route has the highest death rate? Since the first American Everest expedition in 1963, Elizabeth Hawley has kept meticulous track of these details.
 
The database contains information on the mountaineering peaks of Nepal, on the expeditions that have climbed in Nepal or on its border peaks, and on all the members of those expeditions. A table includes literature references to the expeditions. The program is a Microsoft Visual Foxpro application and is compatible for both PC (Windows 9x, ME, NT, 2000, XP) and Mac.
 
Elizabeth Hawley was trained as a journalist, and reports on mountaineering for international newspapers and journals. She is executive officer of Sir Edmund Hillary's Himalayan Trust.
 
Richard Salisbury has been trekking and climbing in the Himalayas for 25 years. He is a retired computer analyst who specialized in databases.
